Are you concerned that in the Church there are less and less organists and pianists leading live Sunday Worship, particularly in rural areas .
If your church is struggling for musicians help is on hand from ‘Hymn Angels’ who will nurture any budding musician and support any ‘reluctant musician’ to give them the confidence to sit at your church piano or organ and lead your congregation in vibrant and meaningful worship.
‘Hymn Angels’ meet individually with budding church musicians on a weekly basis working with their church’s hymn list three weeks in advance, hymns are the sole purpose of the lesson.
Playing at a public service can initially be a nerve-racking experience which unfortunately mainly affects the fingers. Our programme works to build up confidence.
Our ‘Hymn Angels’ are all qualified and experienced church musicians who play regularly at their local churches and understand the importance of quality and sincerity in worship. The principal ‘Hymn Angels’ are Peter Shone who leads the music and choir at Ashley Parish Church, Market Drayton and Olwen MacLeod who leads music and choir at Clachan Church, North Uist.
We recommend easy hymns are set for services to start with and will provide feedback on the type of hymns relative to the pupils ability. We may also suggest that the pupil has a companion for part of the lesson prepared to sing the hymns with the player.
All this is done in the privacy of the pupils own home at an agreed time using Skype over the Internet to connect with their appointed ‘Hymn Angel’ for one-to-one lessons .
Weekly lessons last 30 minutes.
We offer a free initial ‘taster session’ over Skype . If the person is happy to proceed we offer a starter pack of three lessons for £30. Thereafter lessons are £15 each.
‘Hymn Angels’ are part of Your Space Music Lessons (www.yourspacemusiclessons) who are currently the leading specialist in providing one-to-one music lessons over the internet. As Education Authorities conduct their own successful trials in live lessons over the internet and our own pupils continue to make remarkable progress with their internet lessons there is a growing confidence that we are leading a new revolution in ‘music lessons’ which brings opportunity for everyone to learn music wherever they are .
