Just wanted to share an experience to all the musicians and aspiring musicians with kids. I started teaching my daughter (2 years old) the piano. I know, I'm crazy. But really it was easy. I took colored construction paper and tape, and color coated two octaves of white keys. And rather than teach her A B C D E F G, I taught her Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do. Well, I've been at it for a month or two now, and not only does she know all the notes by heart, she can hit them by command as I call them out randomly.
Teach your children music, because it will impact their life, and their life will impact their church, and their church will impact the world.

I am currently looking for new music, I have recently turned away from Southern Gospel.
I am convinced that heavy ragtime/ swing/ boogie woogie rhythms have no place in sacred music.
Can you recommend some music?
I really do not like large choir style music because I have a hard time picking out the words.
thanks in advance.
My search for a place to dialogue with independent Baptists almost ended in disappointment. Many websites claiming to have IFB distinctives, attract the foul and carnal. My perception is that this site keeps that element in check.
I recently launched a website as a tool to assist people under the guidance of my music ministry. I don’t have any commercial motives and freely provide materials that will help like-minded Christians learn to play music that glorifies God.
Here’s a summary of my testimony. Before I was bought with the blood of Christ, I lived for and played secular music. Once I was saved, I tried to play the hymns on guitar but it sounded too much like what I used to play. I came to a place where I never thought I’d play again and didn’t touch a guitar for many years. To me, the guitar was guilty by association and greatly used by spiritual wickedness in high places.
In recent years God opened doors I never intended to push open. I literally had to re-learn to play and I now arrange hymns and Christ-honoring gospel music for the guitar.
When I started my project, I was unsuccessful finding materials to help me learn the hymns the way my church played them. Most everything I found was influenced by another genre of music. I didn’t want to play in the style of jazz, classical, rock, bluegrass, etc. I realized I was going to have to grab a hymnal and do this myself. It was a lot of work but it was very gratifying and I’ve learned so much.
Now I’m sharing the things I’ve learned for all because this information would have been tremendously helpful to me and I hope others will find it useful as well. If you’re a musician or just think what I have to offer will be helpful, please let me know. It will encourage me to stick around.
My website is and ministry is BlessedSongs.
