It introduces simple accompaniment styles including broken chords, the use of octaves, intros and codas. It explains more musical terms and includes some work in minor key signatures. There are many church service style pieces and familiar gospel songs. Songs include Blessed Assurance, Christ Arose, Were You There, Nearer My God to Thee, Sunshine in My Soul, Tell Me the Story of Jesus and more.
The CD, recorded by Madonna Woods, provides additional instruction while demonstrating the musical exercises, songs and rhythms contained in the course. Includes Lesson Plans.
