Free beginner hymns

I’m still on break, but this is too good not to share. A blogger and her 9-year-old daughter has started taking Lutherans hymns and arranging them as free beginner hymns for budding pianists! And, I do mean beginner! Her post here, announcing her intent to share such a supremely awesome resource for FREE, already has the first hymn selection, I Know that My Redeemer Lives! Right on time for Easter!

I particularly adore this selection because, to me, it’s a funeral hymn. It continues to comfort me about those this world has lost, and I think it’s excellent theology put into a child’s mouth. 🙂

Woo hoo! Free Lutheran resource for piano!!!

Thanks, Robin Fish! (And, readers, if you’ve forgotten, now’s a good time to check out Rev. Fish’s book, Useful Hymns (Expanded edition published in  2017).
