In this video, I discuss my favorite 3 tips for helping cantors improve their announcing skills. Let's be honest, announcing is more than just saying "please join in singing" or in the case of a pandemic "please REFRAIN from singing". Sorry, I couldn't resist! It's time we think more deeply about every aspect of ministry and put our best foot forward!

I want to tell you how sight reading changed my life….because it can change yours
In 2005… I first joined a collegiate level choir, it became painfully obvious that I needed to learn more about sight reading (even though I could already play piano!).
Every rehearsal we would be looking at some brand new music and I was the guy that would wait for the singers around me to “get the right note”, and then I WOULD SING A SPLIT SECOND LATER. yikes.
I was really embarrassed and had many thoughts…
These are questions that bothered me all the time…
After every rehearsal, I would go home and listen to our music OVER and OVER until it finally stuck in my head.
I finally had ENOUGH, and I started talking with the student singers
They all told me about how they had taken ear training...
In this video, you will learn a subtle point about the "best" kind of church music for any particular parish. Enjoy!
