~ The most valuable resources for sight-reading are four-part chorales by J.S. Bach and traditional church hymns. ~
~ Bach chorales and church hymns are like the “vitamins and minerals” of piano playing. ~
The regular practice of quality church hymns (such as the ones selected for WRP) have a myriad of benefits that extend far beyond just sight-reading, which contribute to the making of a complete musician. The two pages here present many videos to help pianists improve their hymn and chorale playing. FREE Sheet music for the church hymns can be found HERE, while the Bach chorale book may be purchased here: Hardcopy or Download.
