Suggested Course Order
Depending on what you want to learn, below are recommendations of courses to purchase and the order you should work through them.
There are prerequisites for many of the courses (you do not have to purchase and work through the prerequisite courses, but you must know the concepts in them or you will get lost in a hurry). In most cases, the prerequisites are Theory for Church Pianists and How To Chart A Song. Not every pianist needs to take these courses, but most should. The concepts in those two courses are foundational and critical to understanding what is taught in the other courses.
Here are recommendations and suggested orders for different paths.
If you are interested in getting better at the most common skills needed in church music:
- Theory for Church Pianists (if necessary)
- How To Chart a Song (if necessary)
- Congregational Accompaniment
- Play By Ear
- How To Play Soft Music
You can purchase several of these courses together and save money with our Church Pianists Bundle.
