Sacred Vocal CD Giveaway: His Name is Wonderful

Monday, February 29th, 2016

FRONT BACK

 

Some friends of ours just published their first sacred vocal CD this past summer entitled “His Name is Wonderful”.  I absolutely love it!

Thanks to Faith Music Missions for doing an outstanding  job on this CD! You can hear samples HERE (offsite link)

You may contact me at jenifer@thechurchpianist.com to order the CD. (I do have a limited number of these CDs for $12 each plus postage.)

I was suppose to accompany them for the recording but distance prevented me from doing so but their pianist, David Chamberlain, did a wonderful job!

Hunter and Morgan commuted to our church for at least four years while attending Bible college.  They served in several areas of ministry while there.

We miss them!  (Hunter was the inspiration behind the congregational booklets I’ve been publishing.)

Hunter now serves in a church located in New York City while Morgan is serving in a church out in Kansas.

Back to the CD…The songs are fresh! (some haven’t been published yet)

I plan to publish at least 6 out of the 10 from this  sacred vocal CD.  (“God Can” by Lynndale Hardeman) is already available in our online music store HERE.

Here is a sample of  one of their songs “His Name is Wonderful” written by Reece Yandle (my Dad 🙂

Nothing But the Blood of Jesus (free accompaniment)

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

frog green notes

Several years ago, I published a piano solo (elementary level) of “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus“.   Later on, I came up with a simple accompaniment on a second piano while my student played the solo arrangement on another piano.  We played it in church and I shared the video on my youtube channel.

Since that time, several church pianists have asked for the teacher accompaniment part which was in my head until now 😉

The teacher’s part may not sound identical to the youtube version…. but it’s close!

Hope you enjoy using this free accompaniment version for “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus.” (elementary piano solo)

Greg Howlett: FREE Arrangement

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

I’m on Greg Howlett’s email list and just received an email from him offering his piano arrangement of “O Sacred Head Now Wounded” for FREE!

As stated by Greg: “You might recognize this arrangement because it is an adaption of a longer version I recorded of this song on Quiet Place. I hear from people often who want arrangements from that album and this is the most requested song.”

Here is Greg playing it on youtube:

 

Sacred Piano Duet: Come Thou Fount

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Just thought I’d share a video clip of the sacred piano duet “Come Thou Fount” performed by myself and my student, Hannah Myers.

We played it this past Wednesday for offertory before heading out to the MusiCollege 2015 event.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing this peppy arrangement on a cloudy day 🙂

Ladies’ Ensemble: “The Reason I Sing”

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Our ladies’ ensemble LOVES to sing “The Reason I Sing” written by Niki Lott of christiancompositions.com

This arrangement can be purchased at christiancompositions.com as sheet music or in a book collection entitled “The Reason I Sing” two to three part arrangements for ladies.

We chose to sing the verses in unison due to our short practice time and we sang only a portion of the arrangement due to our limited vocal range which we’re working on.

This song is SUCH a blessing to sing and look forward to singing more songs from the book entitled “The Reason I Sing”.  One of the ladies in our church has already sang several of the songs as a solo too.

*Special note: I didn’t strictly follow the written piano accompaniment but the written accompaniment is pretty 🙂

New! Piano Duo (two pianos) Arrangement

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Just published a sacred two piano arrangement that I’ve had on file for several years. My male piano students have really enjoyed this energy-driven piece.

Here’s a video of one of my students (on the keyboard) playing along with one of our college students in a recent service.

 

Sheet music for this arrangement is available under in store under the Piano Ensemble section for Two Piano Arrangements.

Helpful Resource for Church Pianists!

A Great Find for Church Pianists!

I just subscribed to Dorothy Taubman’s youtube channel. I’ve known of Dorothy’s work and have gleaned from several of her youtube lessons over the years.

I would love to attend piano clinics but distance is usually a factor so I bring learning to my living room via youtube and other internet resources.

If you want to play with ease, you will enjoy the following video.  I was encouraged to discover that I teach some of the same solutions for technical passages but enjoyed hearing Dorothy’s easy-to-understand solutions!

Tremendous Song! My Hope is Jesus

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Just came across a song I had forgotten about… entitled “My Hope is Jesus” by Ron Hamilton.

Ben Everson did a great job singing along with this wonderful choir!  A well written piece…words and music go hand in hand!

I think this song would make an excellent choir piece for Easter…or any time of year for that matter!

 

Pianist with Small Hands: Inspiring Article & Video!

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Even though I’m not a small handed pianist…I sometimes experience the feeling of having small hands due to challenging passages in music.  While in high school I would always roll a 10th in the left hand.  However…after playing a 10th with a gentle “rolled” movement over time….I found that I had stretched my left hand span and soon began playing solid 10ths!

While researching pianists with small hands, I came across the following inspiring article and video!

Click here to read how this small handed pianist overcame his limitation before hearing him in the video below:
