In Episode 10, we talk about the importance of avoiding train wrecks in a worship set. It all starts with good communication. When the band is clear on where you’re headed, there’s a good chance you’ll avoid any mishaps or train wrecks. When the band is clueless and people are communicating different things… that’s where the breakdown occurs.

It’s really difficult to not be distracted by a train wreck.

This episode goes hand in hand with being prepared. But it’s so much more than that. This is not only being musically prepared, but having the knowledge in the moment when NOT to play something. Or communicating ahead of time with the MD or band director so you and everyone else are aware of where you’re going beforehand.

We’d love if you shared any train wreck stories you may have had recently or not-so-recently. Shoot us an e-mail at podcast@worshiponline.com or leave it in the review section of iTunes!
