What people thought of our most recent training day in Maidstone:
Muiscademy training days are an invaluable resource for musicians, singers and tech teams in our churches, whatever size congregation and team or level of ability. The day gives you new ideas, teaches you things you never knew, refreshes your spirit, builds your confidence and encourages you to do better. It also affirms you in the good things you are already achieving for God. Even though you may feel you’re not that amazing, you are.
Another great training day, suited to ‘ordinary’ church band members with varying levels of expertise. The high quality input from the musicians was such an encouragement.
A great time its not often you get the chance to play with multiple drummers or receive the advice of folk with the experience of Mark & Terl
Fantastic insight into the world of sound and PA – great information and techniques on how to improve the quality of sound delivery in the service setting.
Thank you very much for the training day on Saturday – it started and ended with worship and the whole day was devoted to being better worshipers/enablers of worship. It was joyful and practical from start to finish.
A fantastic day with some really useful and practical information and help. Well worth going!
A informative, fun and practical day full of useful tips to use in worship and other musical settings. Came away inspired.
We really enjoyed our training day, and felt that it was pitched at just the right level. Very accessible training in all meanings of the word. Not too much reliance on visual aids, and very practical, being appropriate for many different church styles.
I enjoyed spending time with other people who are keen to try new ideas and get more involved in worship. It’s great to chat about different peoples ideas and experiences.
