I have a wonderful book that teaches how to play hymns. It's by David Heller, and it presents hymns in a particular order. Each chapter of the book presents specific skills to learn followed by example hymns that require only the skills already covered in the book.

“Manual on Hymn Playing” by David Heller

The way I see it, it's the only hymnal that organizes hymns by complexity rather than liturgical category. That means that if you play straight through it, you'll get a fun and strange mix of hymns from every season and Christian tradition. Here's hymn #1 in Heller's book! I think you'll recognize it 😉🎄

By the way, when you make it to the end of the video, you'll get to witness one of the great ~benefits~ of living in community!

This blog is a labor of love and I make it for the simple joy of writing out my thoughts in an organized fashion.
