Just Hymns is a series of printed, bound books of Kim Snow’s easy, two-hand piano arrangements of ten popular hymns. Though written for children, it is appropriate for any beginner regardless of age.
“As a teacher, hymn writer, and one who has played the hymns for my church for nearly 30 years, I have learned what works — what kind of arrangements beginner students can read, understand and actually learn to play. I have tested these hymns with my own students and they love them!”
