Hi Everyone! I've been a musical person for quite some time and have playing the piano off and on since I was young. I joined the church just over a year ago when I was 18 and recently I have been learning to play some of the hymns on the piano. I already know two and am in the process of learning another one. The ones I know are 3 (Let us Rejoice), 136 (I Know that my Redeemer Lives), and I am learning 193 (I Stand All Amazed). It takes me a few weeks to learn each hymn (I am a terrible sight-reader) so I was wondering if anyone knows of hymns that might be easier to start out with so that I can eventually move my way up to the more difficult ones (193 has proven to be quite a challenge!) I do not have a musical calling in the church but I can really feel the spirit when I am playing the hymns :) Thanks, Jeff

Choose The Right is an easy one. With no musical training at all, I plunked it out on my mission and can still play it from memory. There is also a book called Hymns Made Easy that contains a selection of 60 Hymns from the hymnal that have been arranged to facilitate a much easier reading. It is item #31249 available for $5.00 through LDS distribution.

GOD BLESS

Have Fun!

Thanks for the replies, I've already started learning "Choose The Right" and it is indeed easier than the others. I'm also going to take a look at number 19 soon and hopefully get my hands on that book! Thanks again! - Jeff
