The Worship Drum Book 

The Worship Drum Book: Concepts to Empower Excellence is a powerful guide for drummers in contemporary churches and for drummers in traditional churches who are making the transition from worship supported by organ or piano to worship supported by a full rhythm section.

With over 30 years of experience in the modern worship movement, author Carl Albrecht has a vast knowledge of what drummers need to know to adapt to modern music’s being brought into the church. The adoption of drums into church worship services is sometimes a very controversial issue, so Albrecht shares ways that drummers can be sensitive to the congregation and leaders and yet play with authority and confidence.

Developing great drumming skills along with an understanding of spiritual matters is of the utmost importance. Therefore, while this book addresses important traditional drumming techniques and concepts, it also explains the unique role that drummers – or musicians of any sort – have as minstrels in the house of the Lord.

In this book, Albrecht also shares concepts to help touring music groups and worship artists who are called outside the church walls. He and his wife, Leann, minister to churches and worshippers all around the world while also sharing an active ministry in their home church in Nashville.
