Strings provide depth and beauty to an existing melody.
As a strings player, simplicity is the key in worship music. We play counterpoint to the vocal melody — adding melodic lines to the space between lyrics. We play with confidence and good tone quality. Our entrances are strong and confident. Ability to play by ear is preferred, but not mandatory.
