New Arrangement Coming: While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Working on “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night” (early advanced piano solo).

The exciting part…I just came up with an intro and interlude that makes this arrangement long enough using only two verses!

He did a beautiful job!

 

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear: Early Advanced Christmas Piano Solo

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

I had almost forgotten about this early advanced piano solo of “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”.

I actually offered it for “free” back in 2015. This particular Christmas piano arrangement is featured on my “Simply Christmas” CD.

I did this arrangement off the top of my head…so it’s more of a “free style” arrangement.

It’s a challenge for me to transcribe an audio arrangement to paper!

There are a few minor changes that I just HAD to make 😉

New Writing Project for Lillenas

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed the Composer’s Symposium this past July in Atlanta.  I made a connection with someone there (thanks Marty Parks!) who strongly suggested I try submitting “Abide With Me”  via Lloyd Larson of Lillenas Publishing Co.

I finally emailed my arrangement to Lloyd just a couple months ago. He responded by asking me to do an early intermediate piano solo   book instead. Wow!

We’re in the beginning stages of deciding on a book title and song list.  I look forward to this new adventure!  This will be my second book to be published by another company.  My first solo piano book is entitled “Showers of Blessing” (early intermediate) published by Soundforth who is now under Lorenz Publishing Co.

My new book will be published (hopefully) by November of next year.  At my age, a year’s time goes in a flash…especially with many other writing projects at hand!

Thanks for everyone encouraging me to write more!  I plan to!!  I’m living my dream…always wanted to write and share with others.

Special Music: Song Suggestion

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

I love finding new songs (new to me).  We’ve used this particular song over the last several years at our church for special music.

“Then Came Jesus” has a great message of salvation.  I also like that there are only two verses which helps my voice not to be worn out! 🙂

We left out the repeated chorus at the end.  Here’s a video of myself and another lady singing “Then Came Jesus” in our church.

The original arrangement is written for a ladies’ trio.   I’ll include another video below ours… of the trio arrangement.
The music can be purchased at: Marshall Music

Piano Fill-In Tip (chorus of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms)

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

While playing Leaning on the Everlasting Arms for congregational this morning…the thought occurred to me to share one of my fill-in ideas I usually use for the last chorus. This particular hymn needs lots of dress-up to bring it to life!

Some of you pianists may not like “going off the grid” so the first line is for you. The second line is for those who like to venture out in space 😉

Hope all of you are having a wonderful Sunday worshiping the Lord with your church family.

The following example is taken from the first line of the chorus.
