ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Complete Church Pianist Companion Audio is the essential part to accompany Debbie Denke's instructional book "The Complete Church Pianist: A Piano/Keyboard Method with Tips for Inspired Improvisation and Worship" - These 41 tracks contain both simple and polished demonstrations of the various church ideas presented. Additionally this album provides practice opportunities to play-along with full church-style bands!

This easily understood method is for any pianist who desires to make their music the best that it can be when playing in today’s places of prayer, worship, and celebration. The Complete Church Pianist is an excellent resource for understanding and applying contemporary music theory to different church styles as well as a significant introduction into the world of improvisation. This book covers tips for both volunteer and professional musicians, including topics such as:

• playing by ear & interpreting chord symbols
• reading complex choral scores or confusing lyric sheets
• what to expect at a liturgical or contemporary church
• gathering music for weddings and memorial services
• the Catholic Mass parts
* Gospel Music ideas
• finding the best sounds on an electric keyboard or pipe organ
• how to communicate effectively with clergy, choral directors,
guitarists, singers, and excited brides
* adding variety to classic hymns
• how to write a contract

No matter where a person is on the scale – from being someone who knows a few chords and wants to help out, all the way to earning a doctorate in piano performance – there are certain things a musician needs to know about playing in churches.
The Complete Church Pianist draws upon the vast performing and teaching experience of author Debbie Denke (jazz/gospel/church keyboardist) along with additional input given by knowledgeable representatives from a wide variety of houses of worship. This Companion Audio contains 41 demonstrations and full band play-along tracks, great for practicing skills that make a confident church and ceremonial pianist!
