UPCOMING ONLINE COURSES

Conversations in Church Music – Registration now open!

Winter 2018: January 3- March 21 (mid-point February 7)

Kyle Ritter, instructor       kyle@allsoulscathedral.org

Have you ever been at a loss when asked why we do what we do musically in worship, other than, “we’ve always done it that way?” Have you ever had to defend a hymn choice you made, but felt like you didn’t have the right words? This course will help you clarify why we do what we do as church music leaders and planners. Practical exercises will help you build a helpful vocabulary for use in your particular context.

Liturgy and Music for Episcopalians – Registration now open!

Winter 2018: January 3- March 21 (mid-point February 7)

Sue Mitchell-Wallace, instructor           smitchellwallace@gmail.com

Music is integral to the liturgy of the Church, and not simply a decoration. If this is true, then a church musician ought to understand the foundational history and theology of Christian worship. This course will provide a beginning to that exploration, focusing on how music is at the heart of what happens when Christians gather for worship. Although this course is designed especially for Episcopal church musicians, musicians from other traditions, clergy, and interested lay people are welcome to participate.
