Vibrant Music Without Big Pockets
Two Collaboratory Webinars on Creating Vibrant Music Programs on Limited Budgets!
January 13th & 17th
Hosted by the AUUMM (Association for UU Music Ministries; formerly UUMN) and Soul Matters.

Music ministries are central to the spiritual life of our congregations and yet adequate funding frequently remains elusive. These two webinars will provide an opportunity for music ministry leaders to the challenges and solutions to creating vibrant music programs on a limited budget. We will explore questions such as:
  • How do you fill your program’s folders with legal copies of music with a limited budget?
  • What are some sources for inexpensive instruments? What instruments do you really need?
  • How do you convince your board to increase funding for your program?
  • What percentage of the budget should be dedicated to your music program?
  • What are examples of creative and effective fundraising?
  • Where and how can one find on-going support from other music colleagues?
  • How can systemic strategies (such as theme-based ministry) help with the challenge of limited budgets?
All Are Welcome: This collaborative discussion is not just for paid music staff. All worship staff and lay worship team members are encouraged to come.

 

Success Stories on Hand: This will be an open and collaborative discussion but we will also recruit some folks ahead of time to share their success stories!

Offered Twice: To make it easier for all to attend, we will hold this discussion twice:
  • Sunday, January 13 at 7-8pm ET
  • Thursday, January 17 at 1-2pm ET
The topics and format of these two gatherings will be the same but the discussion will surely be different because of those who attend. So consider attending both. Both sessions will be recorded and posted on the AUUMM and Soul Matters websites so those who can’t attend can view later.
