Worship is the motivation behind everything we do, it is what we were created to do.
“I want to audition”
Before you audition
We appreciate your interest in RCC Worship. We know that auditioning can be intimidating, but don’t stress – we want you to be comfortable. You will audition individually with our Worship Director and one or two other musicians if needed.
If you are currently involved at another church, we ask that you stay committed to that church – we believe in local churches and partner with them to reach our community. If you have decided to call Redeemer home, we are excited that you want to take a step into deeper community with the Worship Team.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you have a great audition.
- Please be prepared for your audition. Know all of your parts on all four of the audition pieces.
- We play from chord charts, and rarely from music scores.
- We are looking to know that you can learn your parts by listening to a recording.
- Don’t overplay.
- Be able to receive direction/criticism, even if you don’t agree.
Pay attention to the timing and style of vocal movements in the recordings.
Please refrain from excessive vibrato and unnecessary ad libbing.
Play lead or rhythm guitar for the whole song, don’t alternate.
Pay attention to strumming and picking patterns.
Know how to use a capo.
We want you to know your parts/patterns even though you will audition without a drummer.
Maintain a similar style to the typical feel of worship on a Sunday.
You will play with a click track, so you must be comfortable with a metronome.
Think simple, but be aware that some of the songs have specific progressions/fills and you will need to know these.
Be aware of the other instruments and try not to stick out when not appropriate.
