Whether you already play guitar or are just starting out…I can help you learn chords, rhythm, and techniques to play easier and more confidently in a church service.
Or, if you’re looking for a place for you or a group to record some music, I will have fair rates and help work around your schedule. I can also add background (or primary) instruments if needed.
About me (April): • I am a Christian, and I have attended Baptist churches since I was saved 17 years ago. I have been playing guitar for 20 years and playing in church for over 15 years. I’ve played different styles, particularly hymns, which can be so confusing for a guitarist. I have an in-home recording studio which could be a benefit to your practice as well as if you (or a group you’re in) would just like to record a CD or demo for family and friends. I have the latest recording software, Logic and an iMac computer that I use for recording into. Also, very good quality mics and instruments available for recording. I also sing and play in a gospel trio; we write music that we record and sing at other churches. • I have a great practice/recording area in my home, (in Troy, IL). It’s neat and clean and well-stocked with the tools to help you succeed.
About you: • If you already know a little guitar or bass, this would be especially good for you to be able to improve your skills and feel confident to help lead or assist in worship. (Strong emphasis on rhythm and creating a full sound with each chord.) • Also, if you’re looking to help lead with guitar in your youth group, I can help you there as well. • Whether you are ready to learn from the start, or improve the skills you already have, and are willing to put in the time and effort to practice and get involved, I would love to help you get there.
