Hi. My name is Martan Mann.
You may know me from my many jazz improv courses. What you don’t know, is that for many years I have been musical director and performed at many churches. This has given me the opportunity to improvise hymn-like songs for preludes, meditations, offerings, etc.
Actually, creating your own hymns is not difficult. However, it does require some fundamental music skills. In this course, I have provided you with a step-by-step development of these required skills. All you need to do is practice each step over-and over until it is deeply ingrained in the subconscious. Once these skills are flowing, then you can either create your own hymns or improvise on existing hymns.
It’s really fun. Let’s get started.
