The piano (and keyboard) is the glue that holds worship bands together. From song introductions and transitions to backing music during prayer and altar calls, the piano sets the tone and space inside church.
The needs of a church pianist are unique - there isn’t really any other environment like it. That means the skills are unique. This training pack has been specially designed for worship piano inside a church setting.
If you’ve been wanting to learn the piano to help serve your church but didn’t know how -- this training pack will equip you to start playing and serving in the shortest time possible.

So you can start playing today.
Worship music uses chord charts (not sheet music). You’ll learn how to read worship charts that are used in church. Learn what all the symbols mean and how to match the chords to lyrics.
Start sounding better.
We’ll break down ALL the types of chords you’ll see in worship music in a way that’s simple and fun to understand, using real worship songs as examples. Learn the “cheats” and tips to make practicing (and performing) much easier.
The secret to sounding professional.
Basic chords are fine, but chord inversions will change the way you think about music (for the better!). You’ll sound more professional, play faster, and be more confident. Inversions will make the biggest difference in your playing.
Fill space and add emotion.
Adding little riffs and fills can take a simple chord progression and transform it into something emotional. It’s a chance for you to express your heart and creativity. Learn some of my favorite fills that are easy to play, but sound much more complicated.
How to play with other musicians.
A worship band is a dynamic thing, and it’s important to know how to fill your role. You’ll learn how to play in a band, including how to prepare and act during rehearsals. Most importantly, you’ll learn what NOT to play when there are other musicians on stage.
How to create that “worship piano sound”.
How do you make your piano or keyboard sound beautiful? Whatever instrument you’re using, you’ll learn how to create that “worship piano sound” using piano and pads.
What to play under prayer and for an altar call.
Learn chord progressions and patterns that sound beautiful in the still moments. Whether it’s during prayer or even an altar call, you’ll have the skills to adapt to the situation and create a beautiful, welcoming atmosphere.
How to play intros, outros, and shift between songs.
The greatest advantage of the piano (or keyboard) is its ability to help transition between songs. You’ll learn the simple ways to start and end songs, plus how to change between different key signatures and even tempos.
Playing at church can be intimidating and scary. Even if you’ve played piano before.
Worship Piano takes the fear out of knowing if you’re good enough. That’s because you’ll be able to practice along with YOUR OWN worship band. Play along and get comfortable with other musicians, in your own home. Take a look:

Modern worship music is not complicated. It’s not designed to be. After all, the goal is not “showing-off” or being flashy, it’s about helping people connect with God during times of worship.
Because of its beautiful simplicity, it’s easy to learn and start playing in church sooner. This won’t take you weeks or months to be ready. In fact, you might find yourself wanting to play within a few days of starting.

I’ve been a Worship Pastor at my local church for the past 4 years, having previously been a finalist on Canadian Idol.
As a Worship Pastor, I’m passionate about equipping musicians and worshippers with the ability to feel confident and comfortable in a team setting, no matter their experience or skill level.
Imperfections are ok! We all have them, and we’re all on the same journey to become better together.
At the end of the day, playing music at church is about worshipping God and not our individual ability or talent (1 Cor 10:31).
The most important thing is to HAVE FUN!
I’m so excited to help you develop your passion and desire to serve your church.
I was classically trained in piano from a young age.
It wasn’t until I was about 13 years old and my church started a youth band that I learned that you could play songs WITHOUT having to read every single note on a page.
It started when my youth leader pointed at me and said, “You can play the piano, so you’re going to be our piano player.”
I was like HUH?!
He handed me a chord chart and said, “When you see the chord, play the chord.”
And the rest is history! Now I’m going to give you a LOT more instruction than I got at that time, but the point I’m trying to make is that playing in a church setting, using chord charts is actually really really attainable both for trained piano players AND newbies.
It’s not something to fear, and it becomes a huge blessing for you and your church.
And I would be so excited and honored to be a part of that journey for you.
We love our students. More than anything, we want you to enjoy a super-positive experience playing piano and come away from this feeling happy, equipped, and ready to serve your church. And that means we only want you to pay if you actually LOVE your piano lessons! So join below to try it out totally risk-free.
