A section of my website I want to call attention to this month is called Articles About Instrumental Music. Here you'll find a collection of various articles I've written over the years, giving practical advice on many subjects of interest to directors and instrumentalists. I hope that you will find something helpful on this page.
Are you familiar with The Instrumentalist magazine? Though written for music educators (band and orchestra directors), the topics covered can be beneficial to those involved in church ministry as well. Highly recommended.
An excellent book published by Lifeway a few years back is titled The Instrumental Resource for Church and School. The book is now out of print, but do a search on Amazon or other sites and you should be able to locate a copy.
A couple of older books I have in my library are: Instrumental Handbook, by Harold Pottenger, and
Orchestral Concepts in Today's Church, edited by Jere Adams and Gerald Armstrong. Again, do a Google search and you should be able to find these.
What are some of your favorite resources for information and inspiration for your music ministry? Write me and let me know!
