Piano duet!! I love duets… and Christmas music.😉 So, why not mix the two?
The air is turning cooler! And as soon as it does, I like to break out the Christmas music! You can ask my students — some of us have already begun working on Christmas carols!
Here’s one full of exuberance and joy! What is one of your favorite Christmas carols?
Another one of my old favorites! This hymn just calms me. It is so beautiful, so Christ-centered.

Another hymn arrangement is up on WAJN’s website!

A few years ago, one of my students asked me to arrange her a spiritual, for her to play for her daddy. I actually got some books and studied styling to expand my knowledge in this style. And I had a blast. Since then, I’ve added another verse to it to make it a more complete arrangement. Enjoy!

This week’s music video: Softly and Tenderly arranged for intermediate pianists.
It’s not quite fall, but I love this Thanksgiving hymn (which, if you read the Psalms, Thanksgiving should be a part of our everyday life).
