New Resource – Piano Praise CDs, DVDs and Music Books now available from the Adventist Book Centre

Piano Praise is now available from the Adventist Book Centre stores in Epping and the Sydney Adventist Hospital. It is also available online from:

http://pianopraise.com.au/

Piano Praise is a collection of 57 hymns. It includes a full suite of resources, and is ideal for congregational use – with or without live musicians. The suite (all items available separately) includes: a CD set with piano recordings; a DVD set with the same recordings and lyrics on screen (with Australian scenery); music books; and a words-only booklet. The musical score contained in the music books matches the recordings, so you can play or sing along.

The DVD set also includes PowerPoint files, so you can show the lyrics on-screen when you have live musicians playing from the music books.

Transposed editions of the music books are available. The primary edition contains hymn-style notation for Piano and SATB vocal, and includes guitar chords (with fingering). The transposed editions are available for Bb, Eb and F instruments (using two treble clefs). The use of these books in combination will allow most church bands or ensembles to provide music for their instrumentalists, without requiring any further transposing or re-arranging.

Visit your local ABC store today, or go to the Piano Praise website for more information.

School Library Shelves Are Bare – Your Help is Needed!

We need your help for the Solomon Islands book project.
There are many schools throughout the Islands with very limited or no resources.
The Adventist Book Centre is part of this project to send donated books purchased at the ABC to the Solomons.
We have already sent books and one book in particular had the schools very excited. Jesus Calling is a beautiful book they would love to use as class readers.
You can visit or phone the ABC with your donation amount on 8876 5200.
