Play Beginner GREAT Gospel Songs On Piano & Keyboard

If you are just a beginner to piano or keyboard then you are probably dreaming of a time when you are not thinking what Gospel Songs can I play but what Gospel Songs do I want to play.

Well there are some easy ways to learn gosple songs which I'll tell you about further down this page, but first let's just take a look at what Gospel music actually is...

Thought to originate in the deep south of America, modern day Gospel music was widely sung in worship by African American slaves. To this day it is still very popular in Christian church.

Gospel music tends to be repetitive in format which is designed to make it easier for large groups to participate at the same time. It has a simplicity to it that makes it very accessible.

Whilst many Gospel songs can be performed just vocally, it certainly helps if there is a degree of instrumentation, particularly piano or keyboard . The good news is that because Gospel music is by nature simple and repetitive then even untrained piano or keyboard players are able to play accompaniment to Gospel singers or choirs.

What part does Gospel play now?

Gospel music has a huge influence on popular music with many big stars not only drawing inspiration from it but also being actively involved with the gospel movement.

Probably the biggest known pop icon is the late Elvis Presley who throughout his career performed many gospel songs to his fans and so gave gospel music a platform and credibilty.

One of Elvis's biggest hits 'I Believe' is considered a gospel classic, as well as other major songs such as 'You'll Never Walk Alone' , How Great Thou Art' and 'O Happy Day'.

Many country and western artists also find an affinity with the gospel genre and so they also regularly add gospel classics to their song repertoires.

Star such as Tammy Wynette and Johnny Cash have covered songs like 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken' with a strong Christian & Gospel message
