About this product
- DescriptionThe all-encompassing guide for church pianists! Today's church keyboardist faces many challenges: Pianists must prepare music quickly, work well with clergy, choral directors, singers, guitarists, as well as other musicians, and find the best sounds on an electric keyboard or the occasional pipe organ. The pianist is often expected to interpret chord symbols on a basic lyric sheet, play by ear, improvise, and be able to sight read a six part choral score. This book contains a very practical approach with inside tips on what to expect when playing a wedding, funeral, Catholic Mass, traditional or contemporary church service. It is written for both volunteer and professional pianists who desire to make the most of their musical gifts. The essential companion CD or MP3 contains 41 (demonstration and full praise band) play-along tracks.
