APOSTOLIC PRAISE 601 is designed as a crash course in shout music. It is very hands-on; in fact, you will be playing shouts almost immediately. This course teaches beginner to advanced, including the basic I to IV and I to V shouts and then more advanced variations also. Learning how to play shouts should not have to involve years of lessons. You can learn to play and be capable of playing them in a couple of months or less. Practice, dedication, commitment, and APOSTOLIC PRAISE© are the keys. This book does not teach how to read the type of music that is used in classical music. Knowing how to do this is good but is not really applicable in the typical Apostolic church setting; reading chords and playing by ear are. This book should be used together with the APOSTOLIC PRAISE© Full Band Practice Tracks. They will let you hear the melody and because they contain piano, drums, bass, strings, and sax, they give you the feel of playing with a real band.
