Instrumental Workshop at Bedford May 2

Wednesday 2 May 2018 7.30pm-9.30pm
Holy Child and St Joseph Church, Midland Road, Bedford

Let every instrument be tuned for praise, let all rejoice who have a voice to raise.

This evening workshop will focus on the use of instruments (both classical and more contemporary) to enhance worship alongside voices, as recommended in Psalm 150! Miles Quick (the RSCM’s Head of Congregational And Instrumental Music) will encourage instrumentalists and singers in music old and new, looking at styles and techniques which can help unite congregations and musicians in worship. Instrumentalists and singers equally welcome. The evening will finish with a short act of worship using some of the music and principles we have considered.



Miles Quick is based in Taunton, where he is Director of Music at St Mary Magdalene Church. He studied music at Durham University and the Royal Academy of Music. He was Director of Music at Queen’s College, Taunton (a Methodist foundation) for seven years before deciding to concentrate on church work full-time. He has also served as Musician in Residence at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Vancouver.
