Just Hymns

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 students, and they love them!”

If you are looking for additional help to learn how to play hymns, consider our series, Favorite Hymns for Kids, which also includes hymn worksheets, rhythm worksheets, and hymn and rhythm worksheet answer keys.
