Course Description

Evangelistic Piano Playing Embellishments!

"How to make hymns & gospel songs come alive through evangelistic embellishments!"

   If you enjoy playing hymns and gospel songs in the "old fashioned" way, this is your chance to learn how to play in the full, exciting style you have heard, but never have known how to reproduce.

   Beginning with the basic four-part harmony of the hymnal, each lesson progressively develops the concepts of evangelistic playing by means of chords, runs, chord substitutions, rhythm development, etc. You learn how to arrange a hymn from start to finish using these techniques.



And we use the old, familiar hymns such as...

  • At Calvary

  • Bringing In The Sheaves

  • What a Friend We Have In Jesus

  • Trust and Obey

  • My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less

  • A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

  • We Three Kings

  • God Rest You Merry Gentlemen

  • Go Down Moses

  • Tell Me The Old Old Story

  • Tell It To Jesus

  • We've a Story To Tell To The Nations

  • Rock Of Ages

  • O Worship The King

  • O Jesus I Have Promised

  • The Light Of The World Is Jesus

  • Jesus Saves

  • Wonderful Words Of Life

  • O Come All Ye Faithful

  • 'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

  • Develop more confidence

  • Triple your income


Embellishments Galore!

    Each of these songs is printed in the course as it would appear in a standard hymnbook, and then of course Duane shows you how to enlarge the song so you don't have to play it just as it is written, but in a much fuller style.

    Have you ever wanted to be able to "run" up and down the keyboard? Several of the lessons deal specifically with this technique, and the variety of ways it is accomplished. Learn to play right hand octave runs, left hand octave runs, broken chord runs, 7th runs, minor 7th runs, and so on. Learn where and when to begin a run and where and when to end a run. Learn how to add those rich, modern sounding chords to your hymns. Learn to use passing tones and double octaves and block chords to create a big, exciting sound! You get 40 printed lessons in a big binder, plus an "Organ Supplement" that shows how to apply these techniques to the organ, plus 6 CD's that demonstrate each technique and song in detail

 Duane has a very unique gift... not only a talent, but a very special "gift" from God.  He can communicate understandable musical information by way of audio and video tapes to students in a very practical way and at the same time teach on a very personal level.  It seems as though you've met him in person when you listen or watch any of his tapes.  He is very personable and his Christianity soon shines through in his comments.  He has a wealth of knowledge to share and is happy to do so.
