Just wanted to plant a little thought in your mind for this Sunday, for you pianists.
The piano is an awesome instrument from which to worship God without words.
Ok, so really you are enhancing words – words that are familiar or projected on a screen.
The range of emotional expression at the piano gives it the ability to communicate powerfully.
And, especially if your congregation is familiar with the song you are playing, you have the opportunity to breathe fresh meaning into words that have been sung sometimes to the point over-familiarity.
The right expression at a point of rich meaning. A pause to emphasize a powerful phrase. A different chord that communicates that word (when playing alone).
But you get to do it without saying a word.
Consider how you can enhance the understanding of the words as you play this Sunday.
