These ten hymns are arranged for voice (either solo or unison group singing) with chord accompaniment using 8-note Boomwhackers® and an optional easy Piano accompaniment. Each of the 10 arrangements is also available separately with accompanying preview pages and audio samples.
Those new to using Boomwhackers® or reading music may want to begin with the easiest song which is "Lord, I Want to Be a Christian."
This song only uses 2 chords. For those already familiar with note reading, rhythms, and Boomwhackers®, the most challenging arrangement of the 10 is "We Gather Together"
with 7 chords and quick switching between chords.
