Worship Backing Band
Worship Backing Band is owned and run by Musicademy, the leading provider of instructional resources for musicians involved in worship. Musicademy began in 2003, first as a local music school helping church worship teams play together better and then subsequently began to transfer their courses to DVD as the need for training grew beyond the local area.
Musicademy now has over 50 DVD based training courses for developing instrument skills in a worship environment from beginner to advanced levels. These cover guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, vocals, orchestral improvisation and even an entire course on learning to play by ear and understand chords. Great for worship leaders, musicians, arrangers and song writers.
It became apparent that whilst regular training is the best way to help churches grow in their practical worship skills, there are many churches without the full compliment of musicians, or even any musicians at all who still desire high quality backing tracks to use in place of a band in a service.
Thus Worship Backing Band was born. Initially released as a single DVD with 54 songs, on-screen words, pre programmed play lists etc. it has become a great tool for small groups, churches with a single musician, or even congregations wanting to explore contemporary worship for the first time.
