Yesterday I met with my supervisor and we were chatting about work stuff mostly (I work as a Worship Pastor). We were discussing my imminent departure overseas and how the worship team was going to manage etc etc. (By the way, I think they’ll manage just fine – because they’re awesome!) She joked about using an iPad on a music stand with me singing (via Skype or something). It was hilarious…but you really had to be there.
Anyway, today I randomly just stumbled across this crazy phenomenon. I wasn’t even searching for anything related to this. It seems that it’s the latest thing for worship teams to turn their iPhones & iPads into instruments and form what has been termed as an ‘iBand.’ It’s pretty cool! Cheesy – yes. But still cool.
Here are some of the best groups I found online:
Is this the way of the future? Does anyone have any of these apps? Are they hard to use?
And the real big question: Do you think it makes music more accessible to people or ‘dumbs it down’?
I’d love to know your thoughts!
