A gospel music gift is a horrible thing to waste...

Are you an aspiring or working gospel musician who desires to finally take your piano or organ playing to the next level once and for all?

Do you feel like the chords you learned years ago are no longer adequate to keep up with where gospel music has gone? Do you want to learn more advanced and contemporary ways to approach songs?

Would you like to improve your hymns, worship, praise songs, shouting music, and CCM playing?

If you can answer YES to any of these questions, we would like to invite you to take an online tour of The Gospel Music Training Center.

Korg Pa3x tutoiral: Real Time Arranging

One of the big advantages to having an arranger keyboard is the ability to, in a relatively short time, select a musical pattern and while playing in real time add intros, variations, fillins, and more.

Using these features you can play for as long as you want as opposed to a midi sequence that has a set beginning and ending.

This is particularly useful in the church praise and worship setting where the worship leader may feel led to continue the song, change keys, repeat choruses  ect. on the fly.

Korg PA3x tutorial: real time features

In the video below I will demonstrate some of the real-time features I would use in a song like Dance Like David Danced.

The features covered are:


The Korg Pa3x has three intros for all the installed factory patterns.

Intro 1, is a highly arranged introduction many time 8 measures long. Some are useful and some are not. You will have to experiment to see if they are to you liking.

Intro 2, uses no set chord changes allowing you to use your own and is usually 4 measures long.

Intro 3, Strait ahead 1 measure count in.


There are 4 variations ranging from simple to complex to add changes for verses, choruses and bridges.


The 4 fill-ins are like the variations in that they get a lilttle more complex as you go from 1 to 4

Manual Bass:

Allows you to instantly split the keyboard and take over playing the bass with you left hand. Can be real handy..


Allow you to add a large variety of percussion, orchestral fills, and special effects to your song in real time. I use these pads quite a lot.


The endings are like the Introductions in that they range from complex to a simple one measure and out ending.

The video below will go through these features one by one and demonstrate how you might use them to vary your performances in real time and on the fly.. ENJOY!!
