Workshops & Courses

Public workshops will be listed here periodically. Reach out to book a private workshop for your group or community.

Here are some of the workshops and courses I regularly offer:

Freedom and Presence in Breath and Voice

for singers, performers, speakers, actors, teachers

We explore the journey of our voice — physiologically and philosophically — from inspiration all the way to the listener’s ear.

We explore challenges and opportunities around finding one’s voice and sharing it freely.

We address anxiety and perfectionism on stage, and how to incorporate them rather than fight them.

We explore the stage as an opportunity for a truly connective and nutritive experience for the performer, and how this leads to the same for the audience.

SongwritEr Workshops

for songwriters and those interested in songwriting

I lead the group in a 20-30 minute exploration of a specific aspect of writing and sharing songs. Then songwriters take turns exploring this same aspect while performing for each other.

Songwriter workshops are often oriented around the mechanics of writing songs which produce a certain outcome (catchy, radio-friendly, etc)... although these can be very useful, this is not that kind of workshop. My workshops are oriented around the possibility of a song as a conduit for deep human connection, and our opportunity as songwriters and performers to lead our culture in a much-needed way.

Church / Spiritual Leadership Coaching

for pastors, church leaders, worship teams, and faith communities

For over twenty years I have led worship at national conferences and churches, coached worship pastors, and trained worship leaders, singers, musicians, and production teams. For 10 years I led one of America’s fastest growing churches’ worship ministry, building a community of musicians, leaders, and technical artists. During this time, I learned the difference between building something which “works” — starting with the end result in mind; using volunteers to reach that goal — and cultivating something which genuinely embodies and reveals the personality and potential of the artists and leaders of a community. My workshops and coaching give tools for achieving the latter.

I have also discovered — through my experience as a pastor and as a human being — ways that worship is already happening in our being, without our trying, and how we can come into harmony with that kind of worship, resulting in a deeper experience of God, of ourselves, and of community. My speaking and workshops give practical tools for exploring this kind of worship.

I present to church leadership teams, worship teams, and entire church communities. My presentations are anywhere from 20-90 minutes and include speaking, workshop-style exploration, and music.

Setting the Table

an online masterclass for church audio

With over two decades of experience in worship ministry and audio engineering, I have developed a unique methodology called Setting the Table. This methodology removes the guesswork and frustration typically associated with volunteer, rotating audio engineer-based sound by providing a systematic and replicable approach to audio engineering, empowering faith communities to pursue genuine connection using professional audio technology, rather than fighting against it.
