It has been several years since we have had a musicians workshops at Gospel Rising and we are really excited to be bringing this back for 2018. The gospel band forms such a huge part of gospel music and can really bring a choirs’ sound to life. Bring your instruments!
This will be a completely interactive workshop which will look at the evolution of gospel music from its early sounds, tempos and classical foundations to the modern influences of popular music. Emmanuel will explore the use of modern chord progressions which bring out the colour of gospel music and explore the uses of rhythms and beats. The workshop will also look at how to accompany a singer and still sound great without getting in the way, whilst still creating moods and setting tones and atmosphere.
This workshop will take place in two parts:
1) Morning Workshop (which will take place over both Session 1 and 2 on the timetable)
2) Afternoon Workshop (Session 3 on the timetable, but will run a little longer!)
You are more then welcome to attend either one or both of these workshops as they will cover different aspects of gospel band music.
