MUSC W82 Leading Contemporary Worship. In recent years, praise bands (worship teams) have become one of the most common church music ensembles. This course gives students instruction and hands-on experience in all aspects of leading praise bands and contemporary worship music: fitting a praise band into the larger context of a church's worship, assembling a team of musicians, finding quality repertoire, planning worship services, arranging music, rehearsing a band, and leading worship. The course will include related topics such as sound systems, modernizing hymns, global and ethnic music styles, blended worship styles, and evaluating worship. This course may fulfill an elective for any concentration in the BA music program. Prerequisite: each student must have at least one area of musical performance (piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, other instruments, etc.) equivalent to accomplished high school music-making, or gain the approval of the instructor.
