I think it’s important to balance focused rehearsal times with periods of rest, and I can safely say that the five thoughts below occur in roughly 98% of our rehearsals.
Mentally, of course.
It would not do for me to be speaking most of these phrases into my microphone.
1. “REHEARSALS ARE DUMB.”
I could be at home
spending quality time with my family playing XBOX.
2. “DID ANYBODY LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC?”
Seriously? Am I the only person who knows what we’re playing here? How can I make this rehearsal end on time when these goofballs haven’t even heard the song?
3. “HEY, THAT WAS COOL.”
Band pulled it together on that one. That’ll be a nice spot in the set.
4. “THESE GUYS ARE GOOD.”
They did listen to their stuff after all. Just needed to warm up, I guess. Plus, they’re doing some new things on this tune. I like how this is sounding.
5. “REHEARSALS ARE GREAT.”
It’s a rare thing to leave rehearsal bummed. Most every week, I come away excited about Sunday and more at-ease with the worship elements have been planned.
- What about you? What’s running through YOUR head during rehearsal?
