About the Author

Kim Snow has been teaching piano students for over 20 years. As a piano teacher, she discovered that music curriculum using hymns was limited and difficult for beginner music students to play. To address this need she began studying hymnology, music theory and composition, and began writing her own arrangements of hundreds of the most popular hymns of the Christian faith. She integrates many concepts-including the Circle of Fifths, improvisation and chord stylization-to help the student understand music and how to play the hymns. Her arrangements and other products are available on her website at PraiseNotes.com.


Kim has also been a church musician for over 25 years. She loves teaching online piano lessons across the country via Skype. With her husband, Kurt Snow, they have composed praise songs, pieces for children's choirs and original hymns. Her advanced hymn arrangements have been published in the national publication "The Church Pianist" and Lorenz's piano solos for Holy Week, "With Jesus Through the Shadows."
