On Saturday, March 18th, Jacobs Music of Ephrata was pleased to host a WORSHIP MUSICIANS WORKSHOP: BRINGING HYMNS TO LIFE WITH CONTEMPORARY STYLE.

Clinician, MATT HYZER, explored how hymns and worship songs can be greatly enhanced through improvisation, modulation, chord substitutions, introductions, and endings. Other topics included creative solo arrangements, hymn accompanying, and playing from lead sheets to make worship songs come to life.

As a freelance writer/arranger, Mr. Hyzer has contributed to the catalogs of Alfred Publishing, The Lorenz Company, Mercer University Press, Shawnee Press, and Word Music, where three of his arrangements were included in the collection Piano Praise & Worship.
