Which parts of the suite do I need? How do I use them?
Piano Praise can be used in many ways. For example:
- Church or small group - if there are times when your church or small group has nobody available to play piano or organ, then you can use the DVD Set. Simply place the appropriate disc into your DVD player or TV, or use the disc contents in your computer to play via your projector and sound system. Or if you do not have a TV or projector available, you could use the CD Set to provide the piano accompaniment, and the Words-only Book to provide the lyrics. If you have other musicians available (e.g. violin, guitar, clarinet etc) they can play along to the accompaniment by using the appropriate Music Book for their instrument.
- Church with band / orchestra / ensemble - if your church has many musicians available, including a pianist or organist, and you want all music to be played live, then you can use the Music Books to provide the sheet music for all 57 hymns, transposed into the correct key for each instrument. To provide the lyrics for the congregation, you can use the PowerPoint files available in the DVD Set, or use the Words-only Book (bulk discounts available). If some of your musicians want to practice the hymns at home, they can purchase the CD Set so that they can play along to the recordings.
- Singing Groups - your choral or other singing group may like to use the recordings on the CD Set as backing tracks when singing. Use this together with the Music Book for "C" instruments, written in SATB style.
- Learning to play an instument, or learning to sing - you can use the CD Set and Music Books when learning to play an instrument, or learning to sing. Play or sing along with the recordings, using the sheet music in the Music Book.
- Singing in the car! - use the CD Set and sing along with it while travelling in your car, or just enjoy some easy-listening music. Passengers in the car may like to use the Words-only Book as well, when singing along with the CD.
