Kim Snow has been teaching children piano for over 20 years. As a piano teacher, she discovered that curriculum using hymns was limited and difficult to find. To address this need she began arranging hymns for beginner piano students. Her website, PraiseNotes.com, is the fruit of many years studying hymnology, music theory and composition, and integrating such concepts as the Circle of Fifths, improvisation and other music principles in her piano studio. She is an expert in Finale/Cubase/MIDI software; operates her own in-house recording studio; and, has composed and arranged dozens of songs for children’s choirs and church worship services. Her hymn arrangements have been published in the national publication “The Church Pianist.”
