To the outside observer, it might appear that Grant Norsworthy achieved significant success as a pro musician: extensive national and international touring, big audiences, hit singles and some solid recognition with a Grammy® nomination and a Dove Award. Some might be familiar with his musical history that includes stints as a member of better-known CCM bands such as Paul Colman Trio (PC3) and Sonicflood.
But after years of the unpredictable, rollercoaster of “muso” life – a journey that drew him across the Pacific Ocean from Melbourne Australia to Nashville, Tennessee, USA – Grant felt the irrepressible tug to the next stage of his calling.
Through a series of significant “God moments” and circumstances, Grant came to realize that God wanted to communicate more through him than could be contained by the notes of his bass guitar. No longer content to play the role of a supporting musician, the vision to use his passion, expertise, experience and teacher’s gift to equip Church music teams was born.
Reinvigorated for the new challenges of his calling, and reinvented as a public speaker (with musical ability) Grant began providing instruction for Church instrumentalists, singers and technicians. Soon More Than Music Mentor was founded. With a desire to develop and deepen the heart and the art of worshiping musicians, the slogan “Equipping for artistic excellence & authentic worship” fit well.
Since 2007, Grant Norsworthy and More Than Music Mentor have encouraged inspired and equipped countless musicians of all skill levels, across a wide spectrum of musical styles and a the range of Christian denominations. Grant and his small-but-growing team of passionate, highly-skilled individuals provide the MTMM online and onsite services.
It’s by serving The Church with More Than Music Mentor that Grant Norsworthy has truly found his voice and calling.
"I have a tremendous appreciation for Grant’s passion and dedication to a comprehensive, Biblical understanding of worship. I admire his commitment to educate and empower others to operate in Christian music ministry with excellence."
"His coaching with my music team … struck just the right balance of practical and theological. His More Than Music Workshop was wonderful - disarming humor combined with timeless truths that centered us back on Christ and His mission in the world."
"Seeing how Grant works with teams has inspired me to look differently at how I mentor my team and teach them. He has insight not only into the musical dynamics of a ‘worship team’, but into the spiritual motivations that drive what we all do."
