About Michael E Young

Michael Young is a trained musician who proficiently plays over a dozen instruments, is a lead vocalist and harmonist, is a skilled public speaker, and has been leading worship since 1986. His down to earth teaching style and his earnestness for encouraging and raising up Christian leaders has lead him to mentoring and training a multitude of men and women in how to design, lead, and create wonderful works of worship. His understanding of musical flow, from the days as a child when his father, a Berkley School of Music graduate, taught him the rudiments of musical theory, composition, has enabled him to inspire many to create worship sets that are more than just a collection of songs, but a living string of music that blends as one harmonious masterpiece. His college training in musical theory only added to his natural talents and having served as a worship leader in his home church for over 10 years, and additional churches as staff member, he has taken all of what he has laboriously learned, and through his unique and funny writing style, laid it all out in a simple and concise, Godly manner that even the most basic beginner can follow. Having being raised in a Christian household his love of the Lord is contagious and pours out over the pages as he draws you in to what may be the best worship training course available on book anywhere!show more
