Marc Anderson, accomplished percuissionist and percussion instructor, has traveled the world teaching and worshiping in hundreds of churches, temples, and synagogues. This wealth of life experience provides the foundation for his DVD, Drums in the Church. His desire was to create a learning tool for pastoral drummers that offers fundamental rhythms and techniques for accompanying commonly performed musical styles in contemporary Christian worship. Using the songs of the church, Anderson teaches you to play Latin and African styles on the congas, American folk style on the dumbek, and Irish or Northern European styles on the bodhran.
The Drums in the Church DVD features a picture-in-picture window that allows you to see the techniques demonstrated from different angles. It also comes with an instruction booklet that thoroughly describes each instrument, its appropriate uses, and offers precise instruction that compliments the lessons found on the DVD. Finally, church musicians everywhere have a helpful tool that can encourage "the joy and spiritual energy that can be realized through the proper and tasteful use of percussion instruments" in worship.
