Spiritual Songs and Hymns for Those Who Can't Read Music or Have Never Played Music Before: Play by Letter (Simple Sheet Music for Adult Beginners)

  • Product Code: ISBN-13: 979-8840105993
  • Availability: In Stock

You have never played music before or you cannot read sheet music, but you want to play famous and inspiring hymns and spirituals. Don’t worry! You will begin to play right away. We made our pictured sheet music as simple as possible. You’ll play by letter-coded circles. No musical staff or notes. The easy-to-play songs and melodies were adapted especially for beginners.

You will be able to begin to play right away if the keys of your instrument have letter notations on the keys. Some percussion instruments already have them. They are printed by suppliers (for example, a simple xylophone or kalimba).

For other instruments, you just need to get and apply stickers with letter notations. For most songs, just 8 stickers will be enough. You can create your own using post-it notes or stickers, or you can buy them. Write the notes with a marker - A B C D E F G and C of the next octave. Apply the stickers correctly. Find note C (see picture on how to find middle C on piano).

Most songs from this book are possible to play on an 8-note instrument, so a one-octave instrument, for example, a color bell set, 8-key xylophone, small tongue drum, or even toy piano will be enough.

But some songs here involve the neighboring with the main octave notes. For these songs, you will need a 2-3 octave instrument. It might be the kalimba, 15+ key xylophone, melodica, synthesizer, or piano. All of them need to have special note stickers for beginners. These transparent removable stickers are available on Amazon for 88/61/54/49 key instruments and they can help in your musical experience.

We don't use most musical symbols and notations here: the length of the notes, bars, beams, etc.

This book is aimed at your first musical experience no matter what age you are. There is no wrong time or not enough preparation to take up spiritual pursuits.
