Hal Leonard publishes The Worship Band Book – Training and Empowering Your Worship Band

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jun 26, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Hal Leonard Books has published Worship Musician! Presents The Worship Band Book by Tom Lane, a mini boot camp for bands, artists, worship teams, and worship ministries.

Worship Musician! presents The Worship Band Book

Whether you’re in a band yourself or part of a ministry involved with teams, this book can help you on your journey. For 30 years, musician, songwriter, and worshipper Tom Lane has worked in the Christian worship music industry and alongside churches, ministries, and movements around the world associated with worship.

In this collection of articles, Lane encourages honesty and clear communication from all sides while aiming for the right thing – to be a band that worships, first and foremost. Spiritual, relational, professional, and practical issues relevant for individuals and groups in worship ministry of any kind are addressed head on.

Historically, bands have helped lead revolutions, crusades, campaigns, churches, rallies, and entire nations. The role bands play in worship, though important, is not the pinnacle of the calling or mandate according to Jesus. While it’s okay to have a good rock band and want to go places, many creatively gifted Christians miss the mark entirely and are derailed by their own quests for something other than God. Likewise, worship teams sometimes miss the mark by placing too much emphasis onperformance and not enough on relationships. This book will help lay the foundation for a healthier pursuit of creative dreams and a closer walk with God.

The Worship Band Book is available to purchase for $16.99 USD.

Hal Leonard publishes Desktop Mastering

Hal Leonard Books has published Desktop Mastering, a book by Steve Turnidge.

Hal Leonard Desktop Mastering

Desktop Mastering is a conceptual guide, intertwining a broad range of knowledge regarding audio engineering principles and practical applications for those wishing to enhance their own as well as their clients’ work. In addition to providing a step-by-step survey of a successful mastering plug-in chain, Desktop Mastering covers real-world practical applications and the fundamentals of audio and electronics. Also included is a personal guide to the business of mastering and leveraging emerging social networks for positive personal and business results.

“What makes this book stand out from most ‘how-to’ books is that in addition to useful, practical tips and techniques that clearly show Turnidge has been around the block multiple times, there is a liberal amount of philosophizing and incidental tips that relate to the gestalt of mastering,” said audio industry veteran Craig Anderton. “Think of this more as ‘Zen and the Art of Mastering’, and you’ll be closer to what this unique book offers: a rare combination of practicality you can take to the bank, and insights that broaden your way of looking at the topic.”

Desktop Mastering is available to purchase for $29.99 USD.
