Free Unison Choir Arrangement Coming Soon!

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

pen laying on staff paper

 

I’m re-organizing my music at home and came across a simple unison choir arrangement of “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”.

I wrote it for one of our pianists to play for choir while I was out of town a good while ago.  This particular pianist was probably an early intermediate at the time and needed something basic to accompany the choir for this particular hymn.

I hope to share this free arrangement with you tomorrow..IF we still have power…in the middle of a snowstorm!  (You can also use this free choir arrangement as a vocal solo too).

Free Congregational Piano Arrangement: Joy to the World

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Music-note-ornament-revised

A reader recently requested a piano congregational arrangement for “Joy to the World”.  I had almost forgotten about having this arrangement.  I am forever writing music of some sort and it’s easy to forget what I have 🙂

This is a rather straightforward arrangement of “Joy to the World”…no frills but enough fill-ins to add zest to the congregational singing for this joyous hymn about Jesus’ birth.  Hope it’s a help to church pianists looking for congregational arrangements.

Yes…still alive and well 🙂   Been SO busy developing instructional materials for church pianists.

One of my readers recently requested a prelude arrangement and I will hopefully be publishing it tonight!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately…but I have been busy creating future material for my site 🙂

Hope everyone enjoys their upcoming 4th of July break!

Free Piano Arrangement of “O How I Love Jesus”

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Treble clef on red staff

Most church pianists find it a challenge to dress-up hymns such as “O How I Love Jesus”.  This particular hymn mainly consists of only two different chords the I and V chords)… with an occasional ii chord.

So…how to be creative with a hymn containing minimal chord changes?  I’m glad you asked!  🙂

(I’m currently working on a congregational piano arrangement book for church pianists that need more than the hymnal to play from.)

“O How I Love Jesus” is one of the ones I’m working on now.  The complete arrangement will have two verses.  Click below to download the first verse of “O How I Love Jesus” FREE!

Hopefully, the following free congregational arrangement will spark some creative ideas of your own.

Oh-How-I-Love-Jesus-one-verse

*Special note: The congregational hymns in my book will be in lower keys than the regular hymnal…making the hymns more singer-friendly.

Calvary Covers it All: Free fill-in Ideas

Friday, May 17th, 2013

One of my readers recently requested that I maybe share some fill-in ideas for Calvary Covers it All.

Unfortunately, this hymn is still under copyright so I can only legally share a portion of the hymn.

This particular hymn holds a word for five counts in four different places and then six beats for the final word.

Below, are some fill-in ideas for the verse of “Calvary Covers it All”.

If you read the previous article on “Like a River Glorious” then the following will make sense.

I’m sharing a way that the right hand can climb back down the ladder after playing an octave higher during the first sentence of “Like a River Glorious”.
