The 2021 Worship Leader Conference (WLC) will be focused on hymnody and the 100th Anniversary of Elmer Jorgenson’s Great Songs of the Church hymnal. The WLC is a separate program from the Singing School itself that takes place on the weekend immediately preceding the School. This year, the WLC is July 16 and 17. Even if you can’t attend the whole week of TNSS, coming to the WLC is a great way to be a part of the singing, fellowship, learning, and laughter that is Singing School.
Details are being finalized now, but make plans to attend! The conference fee is $30, including a catered BBQ brisket meal on Saturday. Special lodging rates are available when you register.
At The Singing School we have a goal to train men and women to excel in the public worship and assemblies of the church. We specialize in a cappella, congregational singing. There is something at The Singing School for everyone who wishes to increase their effectiveness in their home congregation. With 50 hours of in-classroom training from Sunday evening through Friday noon, our aim is to stimulate every student toward excellence.
There are five emphases in his/her studies that a student may choose to follow:
Every student is required to take the Sight Reading courses, some Music Theory courses, and the Music Appreciation & History courses. Beyond that, each student has the option to pursue Men’s/Women’s Certification, Song/Worship Leading, Singer’s Choral Workshop, or Song Writing Tracks.
Please see our Course Catalogue for additional information.
I have a music degree from a 4-year college and thought I knew everything I needed to know about singing and writing music. Guess what!!! Didn’t know as much as I thought I did. Learned tons of new stuff. They attract some of the best teachers in their field!! Well worth your time!!Aneva P.
