1. What is the commitment?
Vocals – We ask that vocals/choir members attend rehearsals and practice online to serve our weekly services. Choir rehearsals are about twice a month, and we ask members to serve at least one service every Sunday.
Musicians – Most of our ministries have weekly band rehearsals, depending on the campus and ministry. Most of our musicians serve two to four events per month. It’s all based on your availability.
2. Do I have to be able to read music?
Vocals – We do not use sheet music, we teach all parts “by ear”. So our main concern is your ability to hear and sing the melody or harmony part you are taught.
Musicians – We do not use sheet music, we use a charting system. If charts are new for you, we do allow for that learning curve, and all of our musicians rely on ear training to reproduce their individual parts and improvise. The chart system we use is the Nashville Numbering System.
3. What is the audition process?
Vocals – We will provide you with one song to learn, including lyrics and track to listen to. On audition day, you will sing along with two or three other people, and we will be listening for your ability to hear the melody, sing harmony, and blend. We will also check your range. The audition usually lasts about 10 minutes.
Musicians – We will provide you with one or two songs to learn, including tracks and charts. On audition day, you will sit with one or two of our band leaders and play along with the track. We will be listening to timing, tone, and reproduction of your instrument’s part. The audition usually lasts about 15 minutes.
4. Can I stream the music files to rehearse before my audition?
Audition Songs change seasonally, but below you can listen to examples of songs used in previous auditions.
