The PraiseNotes store has three categories:

  • Books
  • Piano Music
  • Teacher’s Tips

Books

We have three book series –  Favorite Hymns for Kids, Just Hymns and Tracing Through Theory and one stand alone book, Hymns for Kids: Learn How to Read and Enjoy Christian Hymns (Psalms and Praise Choruses, Too!). Click here for an overview of our books.

Piano Music

PraiseNotes offers piano arrangements as PDF downloads of some the most popular and enduring hymns of the Christian faith. These arrangements for the piano student are bundled in our “hymn package” that include:

  • Cover page: hymn name, tune, author, composer and hymn meter
  • Student hymn worksheet, including additional hymn verses
  • Simple hymn arrangement: finger number guide (indicates finger position change), optional “Amen” ending, verse one lyrics
  • MP3 file: an audio file of the hymn arrangement to assist the student in ear training, practice and gaining familiarity with the song

Note: the MP3 file and a sample PDF of each arrangement are available to review prior to purchase.

Our piano arrangements are found in a number of categories: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. They are also grouped by season/theme: Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Teacher’s Tips

Teacher’s Tips are the exercises, worksheets and tools that I have created over the years to teach my piano students. Just like the beginner hymn arrangements, I created these “tips” because I could not find anything similar to help my students, or what I did find proved to be inadequate. I use these tips to teach how to read music, understand rhythm, and improve technique. After many years of using these tips I’m confident that they will help you in teaching your own students. Teacher’s Tips are currently available only as PDF downloads.
