Good Morning! I trust you're doing well. I have a special FREE gift for you today!

Many of you know about the ministry of Ron & Shelly Hamilton. In 1978 Ron lost his eye to cancer. Soon after that, he wrote the song" Rejoice in the Lord." That became the theme song for their lives and ministry. Soon after that they started the Patch the Pirate children's series of songs and stories. They have reached tens of thousands of boys and girls through the years as well as writing hundreds of other songs and arrangements. Even now, during a time of new challenges in their lives, their testimony continues to be "Rejoice in the Lord."

A number of years ago Jan and I asked if we could do piano solos of some of their best-known songs. They graciously gave us permission, so we put together a digital book called, 12 RON HAMILTON PIANOS SOLOS. We want you to have a  free PDF copy of our piano solo of "Rejoice in the Lord" to use in your church.


Many of you use FINALE for your music typesetting. Just a couple tips that may be helpful. Those of you starting out with it may find it very frustrating. It can do anything you want it to do, but it can be difficult to find out "how?" I've found their help menus very difficult to use. I have more luck just googling up what I need. Put Finale Music in first, then a two or three word description of what you need. For instance, "Finale Music multi-measure rest."

However, I've found the best solution is to have contact with some friends who use the program and ask them for their help. I've been using it for over 25 years, but a couple weeks ago I had to ask advice on how to do something new. It's much easier to tap into someone else's experience. Feel free to contact us if you have a question. If we don't have the answer, we'll try to find it for you.

Thanks for your time. Hope the piano solo is a blessing to you and the folks in your church. See you next time!
