MUSKEGON, MIâ”€ The first of its kind training opportunity is open to all church technicians and musicians seeking the finest in-depth technology training available in the areas of audio, musicianship, lighting, recording, and media presentation. The Worship Arts Technology Summit will be held September 14 â€“ 18, 2008 in Muskegon, Michigan. All skill levels are welcome as the training will be presented in structured technology tracks, allowing attendees to begin with the basics and build upon them with a series of increasingly advanced class offerings.
This is not a one hour course or overview, but rather an in-depth, multi day training opportunity offering hands on participation, focused teaching and certification in the areas of audio, lighting and musicianship.
Hosted by Shure, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc., Yamaha Corporation of America, and Martin Professional, this in-depth, hands-on and highly personal event will be held at one of the most beautiful Christian conference centers in the nation â€“ The Maranatha Bible and Missionary Conference Center, a sprawling campus on the sparkling shores of Lake Michigan. On hand will be Summit sponsor pro audio experts along with leading worship musicians and world-class sound and lighting professionals. In-depth three-day tracks will include Audio, Musician, Lighting and Media.
What Makes This Summit Unique?
Theory and Practice: Most technical training conferences are one or two days long â€”sufficient for fundamental theory, but less so in applying the theory to real situations that happen back at home. There isnâ€™t enough time for real world testing with an expert on hand to serve as a guide.
Really, Really Hands-On: What makes the Summit so different than other "â€?hands-onâ€? sessions is that applications and principles will be demonstrated in real time, with real musicians in real rooms that aren't conducive to live sound, just like the ones in most real churches. And participants will have their hands on real gear.
Affordable: Fees for the full course of Summit sessions begin at just $149.00 for four days. Meals and lodging are available on site at nominal charges and group discounts apply. The sponsors of the Worship Arts Technology Summit are underwriting much of the costs so that as many church tech teams as possible can attend.
