When planning rehearsals, do the math.
We want to have fun & fellowship, and love people well, but we’ve also got a mission to accomplish.
(Part 1 of 3)
SCENARIO #1 - FOUR SONG SET:
Let’s say you have an hour and a half and you have four songs.
That’s 90 minutes / 4 songs = 22.5 minutes per song.
A typical song averages 5 minutes.
I highly recommend you run each song two times in a normal rehearsal. This is normal about 98% of the time for me. I occasionally will break this rule if there is a compelling reason like we had technical issues, have major time crunch or it’s a night of worship with 10+ songs, but for a normal rehearsal, we will run everything twice.
So if an average song is five minutes, we run it twice, that’s 10 minutes per song.
Now you have approx. 12.5 minutes left per song for feedback, working out parts, etc.
That may sound like a lot, but it’s actually not. I can do a lot with 12.5 minutes, but if you’re wasting time & not moving quickly, you’ll go through that time like this.

SCENARIO #2 - FIVE SONG SET:
If you have 5 songs and 90 minutes, then you’re down to 18 minutes a song, minus 10 minutes for running songs, then 8 minutes of feedback.
Now you really have to move. 8 minutes is nothing. So you need to have a plan, keep rehearsal moving and use that time effectively.
(Side note, rehearsals without wasted time will be more fun for your team.)
To do this when you’re not used to running rehearsal:
As you lead more, you’ll learn how to do this off the cuff, requiring less preparation.
