Okay, here is the situation. Our church has just recently lost our music minister. We don't have the finances to hire someone to fill that spot so it seems to have fallen to me (the youth pastor) to step in. Normally it would be no big deal. I would just continue what we had been doing. Get together with the piano player and select to hymns. Well, that is the second part of the problem. Due to health issues and family matters our piano player is not exactly dependable. They maybe there one week and then not be there for a few weeks. I have very little music knowledge. I can sing but cannot play an instrument. We have no back up piano player (we have a couple in my youth group taking lessons but not ready yet). What I could really use are suggestions, ideas, information on resources, anything like that. We tried the acapella option, it didn't go over well. Is there software that I might be able to take advantage of, cds or anything. Honestly getting a little desperate. Oh one more thing, our church is mainly traditional but is open to a more blended approach and we do have some talented vocalists but again, at this time really no reliable musicians. Thanks for any help, it will be greatly appreciated!
