Matt Guevara of the Cory Center for Children’s Ministry talks about finding worship music that will keep children engaged:
Here’s what to listen for:
Action. Does the music move you? Is the rhythm and sound so catchy that it will get a 4th grade boy up out of his chair? I do not think every worship song requires actions, but songs that promote it are helpful.
Instruments. Children have defined musical tastes. They like to hear a band. Most children’s music does not sound anything like the kind of music from TV Shows children enjoy.
