StepFWDTips #16: Musicians 101 – Working With Your Audio Team

I’m not sure how your worship services/ music events work in terms of relationships with your audio team but I am aware of the challenges that arise from time to time. It may be at a concert or in church when someone isn’t happy with the sound and either the AV team get blamed or you get a ear full from somebody in the audience! I think Jad Gillies got it right when he said:

“We’re all working together for the same outcome – to use what’s in our hands to help point people to Jesus”.

It’s true, the relationship you have with the people behind the scenes really sets the scene. Autumn and Nigel- Worship Directors & musicians at Hillsong Church, spoke about the relationship dynamic with their audio teams and pointed out some key characteristics for a successful delivery. In honour of the topic, today’s content is brought to you in audio form.
