How to rehearse a band

Bob Kauflin posted a great video from a conference seminar he led. Check it out. It's on how to run a rehearsal with a worship band. Nicely done - and I didn't even have to pay travel or the conference fee!

Developing Arrangements Quickly - Band on the Run Video

Over the years I’ve tried to streamline our rehearsals. Part of it is knowing that folks have other things they’re involved in. Like being with their family. But the other part is that sometimes we just don’t have a lot of time to rehearse. So I’m always looking for ways to maximize that time. At the WorshipGod08 conference I led a seminar called “Band on the Run” that tried to address this issue, covering topics including context, feel, instrumentation, and structure. The seminar was also designed to help churches that were less familiar with arranging songs for a band.

Below is a video of the seminar that lasts about 75 minutes. You can download a copy of the notes here.
