May Ministry Update

Ministry Journal, Upcoming Events No Comments

God is doing a new thing!

Isaiah 43:18-19
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.“Isaiah 43:18-19

What a message of hope! How healing and reassuring! Some people spend too much time dwelling on the past and not enough time looking ahead to what God is doing right now and in the future.  God says, “Don’t you see it? I’m doing something new for you! What I’m doing is giving you an amazing way through troubled times, a flourishing experience through the wastelands.” I’ve gone through some really tough times such as the death of my parents at a young age, physical infirmities, work challenges, and almost losing my home. But through it all, God has been so loving and merciful. He continues to take the worst situations and turn them into something good (Romans 8:28). Stay close to Him, don’t dwell on the past, and know that He is making all things new – “The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17b).

 

The Scoop with Reggie & Heartfelt Music

This month has been very full and very fulfilling too! Last weekend on Saturday, I hosted the first fundraising lunch for Child Evangelism Fellowship Northern California Silicon Valley. A significantly productive ministry reaching 20 million children a year in 200 countries. Then on Sunday, I taught group guitar lessons at River of Life Christian Church in Santa Clara. This Sunday, I’ll be leading worship with Gilroy Presbyterian Church at 10:00am. I’m wrapping up the year at Valley Christian School this month and Graduation for the students is Saturday, May 27 (see below). I’m also wrapping up my private lessons before summer with a Recital in Los Altos at Bridges Community Church Monday, May 22, at 7:00pm. I hope you can join me for my summer concert at Gilroy Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 4, 6:30pm (see below). You can even join us for dinner at 5:30pm before the concert. Help get the word out by downloading the Gilroy Concert Flier and sharing with others.

Pro Tools & Sibelius User Certification

This June, you can become an Avid Certified User in Pro Tools or Sibelius though the week long courses at VCS. Pro Tools was made by engineers out of a need to replicate fancy studio equipment in software form, Pro Tools has revolutionized the modern day studio, not only making the music production process more simple, but also at the cost of pocket change compared to what it would previously cost to get a decent recording! Producers and Engineers record and mix with it. Songwriters and Composers create with it. It is an environment in which you make magic happen!

 

End of the Year with Valley Christian Schools

VCS is wrapping up the school year this month (May 27) and it has been a fantastic experience! Teaching guitar, worship leading, and music technology is both challenging and fulfilling. There are over 40 guitarists in my classes with Intro to Guitar & Bass, Guitar 2, and Guitar 3. The guitar 2 & 3 classes went busking (street performing) in downtown Santa Cruz last week. The picture above is from last Wednesday’s high school chapel. The Worship Teams have been doing a great job! The most challenging has been the new Music Technology course since it’s more advanced than before. Pray we finish strong!

 

Get Pro Tools or Sibelius User Certification

Would you like to get better at recording music or writing music? Valley Christian Schools, as an Avid Learning Partner, is offering training to become an Avid Certified User in either Pro Tools or Sibelius. I am an Avid Certified Instructor and will be teaching both courses. The Sibelius User Certification Course will be the week of Tuesday, May 30, through Friday, June 2, 9:00am-5:00am daily. The Pro Tools User Certification Course will be the week of Monday, June 5, through Friday, June 9, 9:00am-5:00pm daily. Both courses are intensive and will give you the professional edge to rise above the competition.

 

Gilroy Concert Sunday June 4

At Gilroy Presbyterian Church, Sunday, June 4, 6:30pm, I’ll be sharing new songs as well as favorites using loops and advanced guitar techniques. You will be encouraged through inspiring stories with beautiful guitar and vocal tapestry. This concert is free. The people of Gilroy Presbyterian Church are providing a free dinner at 5:30pm. The concert will be at 6:30pm. I’ve enjoyed eight months of ministry with GPC and have thoroughly enjoyed leading the band and choir as well as working with the leadership. This concert will be a culmination of enriched ministry with these beautiful people. Come join us!

Valley Christian Worship with 2300 Students

Besides teaching Guitar and Music Technology at Valley Christian Schools, I am the Chapel Coordinator and direct the two high school worship teams and junior high worship team.

June Happenings and Update

Ramping Up

Summer is usually a time of “winding down,” but for me it’s more like “winding up.” After teaching for many years, some may think it’s time for things to be “wrapping up,” yet this Spring and Summer has been and will be more of a “ramping up” for me. I’m so thankful for the real-world education that Full Sail University gave me through the Master of Science degree program. The business plan for Heartfelt Music, developed over the last year, has equipped me to lead, manage, create, support, and motivate through Heartfelt Music like never before. In June, I’ll be trained to be an Avid Certified Instructor in Pro Tools (the leading recording software) and in July, I’ll finish training to be an Avid Certified Instructor in Sibelius (the leading music writing software). This will help Heartfelt Music expand its offerings in recording and writing out music. This will also help Valley Christian High School with their Music Technology class and a developing program to equip young performing artists. Thank you for your prayers! Your enthusiastic encouragement means so much to me.
  .

Enjoy a Few Summer Guitar Lessons

I’ll be teaching guitar lessons throughout the summer in three locations, so you can catch a few if you’d like. In Los Altos, they are on Mondays: June 20 & 27, July 11 & 18, August 1 & 8. In San Jose, they are on Tuesdays: June 21 & 28, July 12 & 19, August 2 & 9. In Mount Hermon, they are on Saturdays: June 11 & 18. Email me if you would like to improve, info@heartfeltmusic.org.

 

Pro Tools & Sibelius Instructor Certification

Next week, I’ll go through a five-day training course to become both an Avid Certified Pro Tools User and an Avid Certified Pro Tools Instructor. I’m looking forward to using this DAW with Heartfelt Music and with Valley Christian Schools. Students who take the Music Technology course at VCS next year will have UC Fine Arts credit and be certified as Pro Tools users.

 

Spring Guitar Recitals in Los Altos

We held our 2016 Spring Guitar Recitals at Bridges Community Church last week. You can watch a two minute YouTube video to see who participated. They all were fantastic! There’s quite a variety of skill levels and age levels in my Los Altos crew. Michael came all the way over from Mount Hermon just to be able to be in it. It’s a joy teaching all of them and watching them improve.

 

Coming Events

June 5 & 19 (Sun)

Crossroads Bible Church BASS Church Workers ConventionSpiritual Emphasis Week

Twenty-Sixteen Blessings

The Coates family had a very relaxing break for the holidays. Now I’m back in the fast lane with 15 private students, teaching at Vally Christian School, working on a Masters Degree through Full Sail University, helping with the Mount Hermon Community, and leading worship every Sunday at various churches. I’m excited! It feels like God has tailored everything just so I can do the very things I love. During the first weekend of March, I’ll be at the Bay Area Church Workers Conference (BASS) teaching workshops and leading worship with Peter Neumann Friday and Saturday. Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement. Pray with me anticipating significant new developments for Heartfelt Music Ministry in 2016. May God richly bless you throughout this new year!

Fall Lessons Begin Indiegogo-Album 2 Valley Christian School

Still Learning

I hope I never say, “I’ve learned enough, now I can stop.” In order to be a great teacher, I must be a passionate learner. Putting myself in the students shoes and putting a high value on my own continued education is important. I’m continuing in the Masters program at Full Sail University and learning tons. The three classes I have completed so far have been compelling, challenging, and inspirational (Mastery: Personal & Professional Development; Executive Leadership; and Project & Team Management). In July, I completed the Sibelius training in order to write out music digitally. I also attended the National Worship Leader Conference to sharpen my skills at worship leading. I haven’t arrived! I certainly believe the saying, “The more you come to know, the more you discover you don’t know!” Yet, this is a truly enjoyable journey as I become more and more equipped to help others on their journey.

 

Fall Guitar Lessons Begin

I will be continuing private guitar lessons this fall and would love to help you get further along on your journey. On Mondays, I will be teaching private lessons from 4:00pm to 8:30pm at Bridges Community Church in Los Altos starting August 24th. I will be teaching at Valley Christian High School on Thursday afternoons 3:00pm-6:00pm starting September 3rd. On Fridays, I will be teaching every other week from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at my home in Mount Hermon starting September 11th. Let me know if you want to start.

 

New Guitar Instrumental Album

I’m aiming to record a new instrumental album and hoping you will help in some way. I’ve started a crowd funding page at Indiegogo.com which has perks and further explanation of this project. I have one song on YouTube.com you can watch called Abundant Sunshine. When it comes out is when the funds come in. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement! It will cost about $700 for the whole project. Those who donate $10 or more will receive a digital download of my album Instrumental Guitar – Volume 1. Those who donate $20 or more will receive a digital download and a signed CD of my new album Instrumental Guitar – Volume 2. Those who donate $30 or more will have their names printed on the inside of the CD cover. In addition, all perks stack, so any one of the higher donations will receive all the perks before it.  These are just a small way to say thank you for your involvement.

 

Valley Christian School Begins

The Valley Christian School year is starting back up next week. I’m excited to work with the worship teams, chapels, and guitar classes. This year I will have three guitar classes. There are three worship teams, one junior high and two high school. The worship teams will be doing events outside of the school as well. My Mission Statement for life is to lead others toward intimacy with God and Valley Christian School is the perfect platform to do that (I consider it an extension of Heartfelt Music Ministry). It is very fulfilling for me to see students succeed.

March Ministry Update

Ministry Journal, Upcoming Events No Comments

 

Keep Learning!

It is so important to keep learning and never too late to go for more education. Earning a BA and Teaching Credential in Music has been such an advantage for me in performing and training others. To go a step further, I will be pursuing a Masters Degree in the coming months (more below). Next month, Phil Keaggy is coming to San Jose and tickets are now on sale for Tuesday, April 14, at 7:00 (more below). The BASS Convention was a huge success last weekend (more below). Thank you for your continued prayers and care for Heartfelt Music Ministry.

 

Bay Area Church Workers Conference

It was a joy to be involved with the BASS Convention last week (the Bay Area Sunday School convention is training for church workers who volunteer their time in every area of church ministry). I am on the board and organize the workshops for the Worship, Music & Drama section. Peter Neumann was our Keynote for this section and did an outstanding job. I taught two workshops, Dynamic Guitar in Worship and Worship Organization with the iPad.

 

Masters Degree in Entertainment Business

I am very excited to continue my education in the field of Entertainment Business. Full Sail University has a wonderful 12-month program that will not only give me the most current and relevant education in Entertainment Business, but also land me a Masters Degree in the process. More than 30 years ago, Full Sail began as a dream to create a place where people could learn how to take their passion for entertainment and turn it into a career they love. This will help me in developing a new Contemporary Artist Program at Valley Christian School and give Heartfelt Music a cutting edge in equipping others for ministry.

 

Phil Keaggy Is Coming to San Jose April 14

Phil Keaggy is coming to Valley Christian School for a concert Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 7:00pm. It’s open to everyone! Tickets are on sale through Vendini (CLICK HERE). Phil is one of the best guitar players in the world. Having someone of Phil’s skill level, genuine humility, and deep faith will inspire you and remind all who attend of God’s creative artistic beauty (watch his “True Believers” video). Heartfelt Music is joining with VCS to have Phil Keaggy share his passion in music and Christian faith. The concert is limited to 300 people, so don’t wait to get your tickets ($25 adults, $15 students). Tell a friend!

Also, as President of the Mount Hermon Community, we hope the new Executive Director of Mount Hermon Conference Center is a perfect fit for the camps and the community. Their final decision on this person is going to happen more sooner than later. It is so important to get a strong Christian and experienced leader in this position. Please, pray for these things.

Worship Consultation

It has been a joy working with the worship team at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Campbell! With two services and multiple teams, they have a wide offering of music styles and sounds. Worship consulting is tailored and designed to develop the skill of the musicians and leaders, enhance the corporate singing of the church, expand understanding of group worship dynamics, motivate a lifestyle of intimate worship, inspire confidence and expression, and build “team” unity with good communication. The musicians play together while I make observations to apply the methods discussed earlier. I can come to your church in order to work alongside you, your musicians and enhance your ministry.

Worship at Valley Christian High School

The worship team at Valley Christian High School is doing some outstanding ministry! The two High School bands have led the 1,400 students in worship during chapels every week. It’s been a delight to work with them, learn new songs, and see significant spiritual growth in the lives of the student body. You can hear and see a song they performed last week called Something New by the group For All Seasons on YouTube [CLICK HERE to view]. We just had our Spiritual Emphasis Week with Josh Riebock. His style of storytelling and being authentic was perfect to encourage the students and faculty all week.

A Season of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! We have reason to have thankful hearts at all times because of Jesus, “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4).  In addition, this Thanksgiving season inspires us to have an extra sense of gratitude which is the perfect preparation for Christmas right around the corner. May this be a most meaningful Thanksgiving for you, your family, and your friends.

I continue to teach about 20 guitar students, lead worship at various churches, and train through workshops and consulting. I’m setting up January events now, so let me know if I can join you or your church in some way. Wrapping up a semester at Valley Christian School which has been a rewarding ministry experience.
