Stretch Yourself – Part 3

When I first started working with my producer, Peter Link, I had to literally learn a new musical language.  He came from pop and theatrical music as well as the studio world of creating lyrics and recorded music first.  The sheet music always came well after the singers had made the recording of the song or album at hand.

Peter was accustomed to writing music, initially with his guitar, and later sitting at his computer keyboard and playing in melodies, chords, bass parts, —¬† orchestrating as he went along.¬† So when the singer (me, for example) came along to learn a song to record and/or perform, sometimes, there would be simple lead sheets (melody only) but usually I was given a study track and lyrics.¬† To this day, these are my starting tools whenever I do studio work with Peter and, most often, with other producers as well.

So, Peter comes from the school Composers who work with Ear Musicians — singers and instrumentalists who listen and learn from the study tracks and lyric sheets.

Stretch Yourself! – Part 2

Hello again, good friends! ¬†Here is part 2 of the Stretch Yourself series of blog posts. ¬†Included here are excerpts from Watchfire Music’s free Info PDF download included in Peter Link’s new Solos For Sunday Morning Song Bundle.

The Informational PDF covers some of the issues in negotiating contemporary church music and its particular challenges.

At WFM, we have realized that we have not communicated nearly enough about the many wonderful Study Tools that a large majority of our WFM Composers are offering to church musicians to aid in their preparation of the music.

If you are a church musician or a passionate supporter of sacred music and musicians, I hope you will find  this series helpful.  Maybe it will spark some conversation around the music in your church!

If you are just discovering this series, click here to start from beginning to read Part 1.  You can also download the whole PDF here.

If you are up to speed, here is Part 2:
