About the Scores

With the exception of the piano arrangement He, if you have purchased a copy of my downloadable sheet music from Sheet Music Plus, MusicaNeo, Piano Song Download, or Mylight Music, please feel free to use it for live-streamed church services through April 30, 2020. No licensing is required but a listing in the description or credits would be much appreciated. (And if you have a recording, I’d love to see it!)

For my piano arrangements in the books All Good Gifts Around Us and In Heaven Above – including downloaded ones – please visit Augsburg Fortress for their policies on live-streaming.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I’d be delighted to hear from you.

My prayers for health and safety go out to all of you and your congregations.

My goal is to publish clear, detailed, accessible, high quality sheet music you will enjoy playing, so here are just a few things I do:

I proofread each score. Three separate times. And then backwards.1
Because you shouldn’t have to figure out or overlook mistakes.

I provide clear tempo/style markings with suggested metronome markings.
Because vague terms like “Moderately” and “With Love” won’t help you play great music.

I include suggested fingerings on the trickier passages in piano scores.
Because you have better things to do with your time than untangle your fingers.

I never use block piano chords that span more than an octave.
Because, like me, you may have a hand span with an octave limit and music should be accessible to all.

I lay out scores to print on the fewest sheets of paper without sacrificing readability.
Because scores should be easy on the eyes and easy on the environment.

I honor copyrights and give credit where it’s due. (And I hope you do, too!)
Because it’s not nice to steal stuff.
