Jump right in, and let's get started!
Lesson 1. FREE - Vocal Registers
"Utilize the Entire Range of Available Notes"
In this lesson taken from the Vocal Technique Course, Curtis Hollembeak describes the different areas of the vocal range, such as vocal fry, falsetto, chest voice, head voice, super head voice, whistle register. Learn how to recognize each register, how to produce a clear vocal sound in each register, and to transition easily from one to the other.
Lesson 2. FREE - Congregational Song Leading
"Let's All Stand Together and Sing"
This is an actual lesson from our Conducting Course. One of the primary ways that a local congregation participates in a church worship service is through the singing of hymns and gospel songs. How can the song leader best guide them through a successful, vigorous, heart-warming delivery of each song?
Lesson 3. FREE - Piano Notes
"Consider Some Key Points"
This free demo lesson is from the Basic Music Theory course. Mastery of the piano keyboard is an invaluable skill for every musician. The piano helps the student to understand the relationships between notes in scales, to visualize intervals, to see the need for flats and sharps, and makes the comprehension of music theory much easier.
Lesson 4. FREE - Quarter, Half and Whole Notes
"Elongating the Pulse"
This free lesson is an example from the Sight Singing course. The quarter note is most often used as a reference point when discussing rhythm, and is normally assigned the value of one beat. From there, we can move on to learning that the half note gets two beats, and the whole note gets four beats. Each note has an associated rest.
Lesson 5. FREE - What Is Christian Music?
"A Summary of Scriptural Music Principles"
This free lesson is from our course on Biblical Music Philosophy. Much confusion abounds concerning what Christian music really is. Some would say that Christian music is anything performed by someone who claims to be a Christian. These same folks would claim that music and musical styles are “amoral,” an unreasonable stance at best. Let’s discuss what Scripture has to say about the subject of music.
