Worship Band Skills

In this download:

 Stage Placements

  • Introduction - A general introduction to the Band Skills Course.

  • Stage Placements - Many bands follow the traditional rock band model of stage positioning but we think that's far from ideal for most worship band contexts. We unpack who stands where and why, with emphasis on clear sight lines. As well as where musicians should stand, we also look at amp placements.
