Praise & Worship Lessons in Dallas
Teaching Students of All Levels
Promethean Studios offers beginning, intermediate, advanced, and professional
level praise & worship lessons, praise bands, and camps for all ages—kids,
teens, and adults. We also offer worship seminars for churches and ministries
that are directed at teaching your musicians to better lead your members.
These seminars are usually provided on site, but can be taken as a worship
class at our studios. We offer private and group instruction from our
experienced and talented worship teacher.
Qualified Worship Music Instructor
Mark Black, the founder of Promethean Studios, has led worship for 35 years,
been a music director for churches for 17 years, and has taught and played
in scores of worship seminars and conferences across the Southeast and
Southwest. He taught applied instruments, voice, theory, conducting, and
songwriting for six years at Christ for the Nations Institute, where he
enjoyed teaching students from dozens of countries as diverse as Bhutan,
Iceland, and Papua New Guinea. He was also the instrumental director and
led the orchestra there.
Customized Lessons for Each Student or Group
We also teach praise and worship bands and music groups for all ages. In
the summer, our teachers offer band camps which can be designated for
praise and worship bands. Our students' lessons are customized for
their specific desires and abilities, balancing progress and fun. We serve
the entire Dallas area, with students from Addison, Allen, Carrollton,
Farmer's Branch, Frisco, Garland, Lewisville, McKinney, Park Cities,
Plano, Richardson, Rowlett, Wylie, and their outlying communities. We
are the premier location in the Dallas Metroplex for praise & worship
lessons, camps, praise bands, and worship seminars, at prices 20% less
than comparable quality instruction.
*Note: if you simply want to learn praise & worship music on your instrument
or voice then we can set up private lessons and specify that during your
time with our instructor.
The Importance of Skill in Worship Music
Someone taking praise and worship lessons at Promethean Studios or attending
a worship seminar by Promethean Studios is concentrating on learning to
worship God and lead worship, either for themselves, a small group, youth
group, a church, or an entire ministry. The worship leader, worship team,
instrumentalist, or vocalist who wants to master praise and worship music
must understand the place of skill and ability in being able to lead others
in worship. Skill is a good thing, not just from man's perspective,
but from God's. The musicians in the temple were skillful...1 Chronicles 25:7 "Their number who were trained in singing to the
LORD, with their relatives, all who were skillful, was 288".
This is not to say that musical skill qualifies someone to lead, or that
only the skillful should lead, rather the more skillful you are and the
more you understand about God's gift of music, the more potential
you have for being a vessel for the Lord musically. God made music and
created the synchronicity that is music and so we can learn about it and
master it for His glory.
What to Expect in Our Lessons
Our praise and worship lessons and worship seminars generally include instruction in:
The specifics of worship leading (song selection, intros, exits and transitions, leading a group etc.)
Understanding music theory (how God put together music and how to make that work for you)
Creating and performing P&W sessions in the lesson or seminar
Our worship seminars are typically for the worship team, praise band, or
youth group of a church or ministry, but can be for the entire church
itself. Most of our worship students take private, one-on-one lessons;
we also offer group classes. We also offer e-lessons, which are online
lessons conducted through the internet.
It's vital that musical educators coach each worship leader on how
to grow as much as possible, whether that person just wants to lead bible
studies, youth groups, worship teams, or run the entire worship ministry.
Our teacher takes your goals seriously, so, as the wise mentor he is,
he looks ahead to teach you all you'll need to get where you want
to be in praise and worship music. We also provide personalized instruction
in Contemporary Christian, praise & worship, and traditional hymn styles.
To the student who says "teach me to lead worship", we would
say this is the best school of music in the Metroplex. Our educator has
made your success and enjoyment his main goal. We are trying to cross
the attitude of a music conservatory or music academy, even a university,
with just worshipping the Lord in your room.
Coming to lessons, improvising at home, learning to praise the Lord, attending
cool workshops and music seminars, learning great songs, cutting albums
with your worship group—we want to produce students who can do all
these things while enjoying God's gift of music.
