Helping gospel choirs to be the best they can be
|I’ve been singing in, playing for, directing, and writing music for gospel choirs all my life. I live in Los Angeles.
These pages are full of resources to help gospel choirs and choir directors achieve excellence in their ministry. We talk about how to teach different types of gospel choirs, how to choose the best songs for any occasion or purpose, and how to get the best out of your choir.
Singing in choirs and directing choirs are among the greatest joys in my life. I want to do all I can to support the ministry of the gospel choir everywhere. I hope that these web pages can be useful to you in helping you develop in whatever part of the music ministry God has given you.
Be sure to check out ChoirParts.com, practice tracks that you can download for your choir.
I also have informational videos and music videos on my YouTube channel: JoanTheChoirLady
Our music is special!
There’s nothing else like the uplifting sound of gospel choir singing. The sound of voices lifted in praise can inspire feelings of joy and wonder, devotion and determination in our hearts. Even non-Christians are moved by the beauty and power of what the gospel choir offers.
The only thing better than listening to a gospel choir is being a part of the choir yourself. We minister to ourselves first, and then to the rest of the world.
The reason why we sing – Understanding the ministry of gospel choir singing
Remember this: Praising God through music is something that we are commanded to do in God’s word. Don’t let anyone call the music ministry trivial or unnecessary. It is something that we must do.
We are instructed in the scriptures to sing to God as a form of worship, and also to sing to our fellow men as a form of encouragement.
We should take our ministry seriously. Gospel singing should be done with both sincerity and skill. God and our brothers and sisters deserve nothing less.
