Every week there are literally thousands of drummers that play in a church setting. I recommend the experience for anyone. There are some church drumming gigs that are paid but many of them are on a volunteer basis. While it’s a great environment to play in, it does hold it’s own challenges. You have to be aware of a lot more than just making the music happen. You have to know how to take a room full of non-musically inclined people and lead them through a song service. Watch the video below for my top 3 tips on playing in church (I’ve been playing in church for 17 years now…I know a few things about it). At the end of the video is a 15 minute long clip of me playing live here at a church in Nashville. Watch through it to help you get a feel for the things I talk about in the lesson as well as a look at how the band communicates.
