Q

I paid for 1quarter how do I continue paying?

The next quarter (Q2) of Solo Thoughts has not been released yet, but once it is you can simply purchase it just as you did with this quarter!

Q

Hi. Thanks for your response. Do the mp3 files submitted need to be a recording of a 'live' performance, or may they be files generated from the music software program. I use Finale.


Watchfire Music responded on 01/23/2020
A

Since you are a composer, we are only asking for the MP3 files to get a sense of how the music sounds, so either live or computer-generated MP3s will work, whatever you think is better.

Q

How much is Solo Finder per quarter?

We now offer two related resources for finding solos, Solo Thoughts and Solo Thoughts Select.

If you are looking for recorded solos to be played in lieu of a live soloist, you will want to use Solo Thoughts Select, which is $19.95 per quarter and can be found here: https://watchfiremusic.com/shop/sheet-mu...

Watchfire has an exciting new resource, Solo Thoughts Select, that is exactly what you are looking for! It includes multiple recorded solos to select from each week, curated specifically to that week's bible lesson. To read more about it and look at a sample, please follow this link: https://watchfiremusic.com/solo-thoughts...

Q

Can I listen to samples of music suggested for each week?


Watchfire Music responded on 01/06/2020
A

Yes, you can! Every recording we offer on our website has an audio sample, usually 60-90 seconds long, that you may listen to before making your purchase. Look for the orange rectangle with music player controls, right underneath where it says "Listen To Sample", to hear for yourself!

Yes, absolutely! Solo Thoughts, our resource for choosing solos based on the weekly bible lessons, is always made available at least one month early each time we release it, so you and your soloist have plenty of time to make a selection and practice it! You can find more info on Solo Thoughts here: https://watchfiremusic.com/solo-thoughts...

Q

If my branch church subscribes to the service for weekly solos, can a 2nd person on the Music committee 'share' this subscription?
Thanks

A

Yes, absolutely, Sally. It's meant to be shared with your church music committee and musicians. Sharing it beyond your church would not be permissible. We hope this is helpful!

Q

I am appalled that you are pushing to replace live music and musicians with your new program.


Watchfire Music responded on 06/23/2019

Hi Tom,
Thank you for writing in. We deeply appreciate your concern. We are not remotely trying to replace live music and musicians. No! On the contrary, Solo Thoughts Select is a response to a current need voiced to us from church music committees and individual members around the world over the past several years. It's an answer to many requests we have received from folks whose churches have transitioned away from live music for various reasons. To answer this need responsibly, we began to look at what we could do to offer a solution to help these churches keep a continuity of the musical elements of a church service as outlined in the Manual of The Mother Church. In summary, Solo Thoughts Select is our answer to supply a current demand for sacred recorded music in some churches. We view this as purely supplemental to our primary and continual activity of supplying church musicians with sheet music for their church services, which is going strong as always! We hope this is helpful!
