This book is spiral bound
and includes 16 songs and 40 pages
of early intermediate friendly music.
It was created for anyone who is just starting to be able to
play easier hymns from a hymn book.
My hope is that it will allow the piano student to progress
and be successful at the piano but most important of all...
enjoy the music they play!
No weird notes or chords that make you wonder if there was a mistake...
No Crazy Keys!
(Never more than 1 sharp or 1 Flat. Key of C, G and F Only!)
No crazy stretches of the hand. This is made for people with smaller hands!
Reasonable page turns!
(We've looked at every page and intentionally made the page turns friendly.)
If there is an extra high or low note... or tricky fingering... we've written it in for you.
I've included various simple finger patterns to help
learn to improvise and progress to more advanced music.
We want this book to be your friend so you aren't scared to play for others!
We hope it will give you the confidence to play your music for others...
to share a musical number in a church service...
or just enjoy the spirit good music can bring.
All songs are 100+ year old Christian Public Domain hymns...
We searched out our favorite classic melodies from all denominations.
Each song was arranged to sound harder than they actually are to play.
Each of the songs can be performed for worship services
and streamed for online worship services.
We included side notes at the top of each song with background about the composer, a story about the music, or when it was written. Our hope is that you'll be able to connect with the music.
