  1. Get You Functional (this is the focus of Modules 1-3)
  2. Expand Your Toolbelt (we work on this in Modules 4-5)
  3. Prepare You Professionally (and creatively! The really fun stuff is typically in modules 6-8)
  1. They Save You Time - They are a system to get you functional and playing real worship songs quickly without feeling overwhelmed.
  2. Fun But Challenging  - ZJC courses challenge you via quizzes, tests and more to create resistance & test what you’ve learned.  This simulates what you would learn in private lessons, and makes it more likely that you will retain what you learn and take the learning beyond this course.
  3. Teach You “How To Fish” - I want you to become a self teacher.  These courses take techniques from private lessons & self-teaching experience to give you exercises that train your brain, and train you to learn how to create exercises to self teach new musical concepts.
  4. They Prepare You Professionally (And Creatively!)  - As a worship leader, this course is everything I would want you to know about playing on a worship team.  Serving on a team is more than playing the right notes.   These courses teach how to be an ideal team member, and are tailored for worship ministry preparation.

    The courses are based on 15 years of personal live experience on worship teams in non-orchestral roles (worship leading, acoustic, electric, bass, drums, keys, tech and more), plus composition training & arranging experience working with orchestral instruments.  When you put it all together, this allows me to take a holistic approach.  It allows me to share the unique things an ideal team member pays attention to, as well as how each role relates to other members of the team. 

    For example, this course talks about how bass players & drummers work together, as that's a key relationship for bass players.  Other roles have different things they need to focus on, and they will be covered in additional courses.

    There are also many things in ZJC courses that are influenced by over two decades of broader ministry experience in over 400 churches across 45 US States, Canada & South Africa.  I draw from this experience to accelerate the journey of new worship leaders & team members.  In the courses, I do everything I can to make you more effective in your ministry as you serve your local church and beyond.
