How To Play Modern Worship Keys

There’s never been a more exciting and challenging time to be in the keys position on stage but as worship leaders we understand that there’s a big difference between ‘playing piano’ and ‘playing worship keys’. Figuring out how to articulate that difference and transition your volunteers from playing to piano to playing worship keys doesn’t have to be complicated or controversial.
