Our online seminars are designed to equip church musicians, pianist, and teachers by working through common topics of question. Each LIVE seminar comes with a free E-version resource booklet with tips and practical ideas that will be discussed at the upcoming seminar. Seminars will be held on the last Monday of each month at 7:00-8:00pm EST with added time at the end for questions.
(If you are unable to attend live, you may purchase the audio and booklet bundle after each seminar.)
