New ideas for 2011

Here are some things going on in my head that I’m keen to try out this year:

  1. Introducing loops in our worship. Checking out some ideas from other churches, seeing what they use and why. So far, Reason looks good and isn’t too expensive.
  2. Get most of the musicians onto some sort of in-ears or headphones. I remember we looked at the Hear Back system a while ago, but to save costs we’ll probably use our headphone amp and run some headphones to the guys.
  3. Experiment a bit more with co-leading worship. A few weeks back Khaya and I led worship together and it worked really well.
  4. Get another keyboard/synth. Something like the Kurzweil PC3
  5. Create more open space in our times of worship.
  6. Use more pads.
  7. Play less.
  8. Listen more.

What are you keen to try out this year?
