If you answered "ME!", then read this webpage and try my step-by-step system unleashing the techniques to create exciting hymn piano playing
From: Yoke Wong,
L istening to hymn is such an uplifting activity, its inspirational. But have you ever been stumped, confused, or overwhelmed when it comes to playing from a hymn book? Do you feel that playing piano from a hymn book does not sound very exciting and may even be boring at times?
You Are Not Alone!
Many of my friends have experienced the frustration of playing Christian hymn music from a hymn book.
I have been a church pianist since 1990 and I have struggled with playing hymns also; I remember as if it was yesterday how badly I was shaking the first few times I ever played in church.
I literally felt the butterflies in my stomach!
So, don't feel bad if you get as nervous as I did!
The Secrets To Making Hymns Sound Truly Alive
You are probably aware that Hymn books were written primarily for singers (it comes in 4 parts, SATB) and it was not designed for piano players in mind.
If you play hymns as they are written, there is no way that they are going to sound great.
So, if not from the hymn book, how are you to learn to play hymns that really sound alive?
Many church pianist know which button to push when they play a particular hymn. Yet, you can rarely find a piano teacher who teaches others how to arrange hymns using piano chords.
In fact many people have no clue how to make a hymn come come alive on piano.

"I Belong To The Advanced Player Group..But I Can Sure Make Good Use Of The Techniques"
I just received your recent hymn playing DVD yesterday and in 2 days time, I watched all 4 and thoroughly enjoyed them. I belong to the advanced player group as I have been playing in my church for 20 years, but I can sure make good use of some of the techniques you demonstrated in these courses! I want to commend you for preparing these music sheets for us. It is difficult to follow one's own improvisation. But it certainly helps learners to have music sheets in to follow because it makes it so much easier for us to translate exactly what we see in the video.

"It Looks Excellent, And Already I Have Learned A Few Things...."
Thank you so much for the course! I have started in on it. Slowly, due to a crazy schedule. But so far it looks excellent, and already I have learned a few things about suspended chords and the triplets I have heard our church pianist play.
I am grateful for the DVDs, because I need to hear these things over and over to understand and actually be able to do it myself. I love your majestic arrangement of Holy! Holy! Holy! I also appreciate the suggestions about performance anxiety. I've recently returned to studying the piano after a 22 year absence. I was pressed into playing for our church by our present pianist, but suffered such panic attacks! After several months, the Lord delivered me from those.

"I Noticed How The Octave Exercises Have Really Helped My Finger Range.."
I have received the Hymn course and have worked through the first CD and part of the second. I found that adding the suspension and the triplets to "Holy Holy Holy"; to be quite a pleasurable; addition to my version of it. I love the course!
Your piano playing is beautiful and I appreciate your comments about not being fearful of making mistakes. I noticed how the octave exercises have really helped my finger range-I have small fingers and this has extended my reach beautifully.
I have already noticed that my hymns playing sounds better and I can't wait to introduce the congregation to the sound of that suspended 4th in "Holy Holy Holy"; -our usual processional.
