CD TRACKS WITH PIANO SOLO MUSIC

  • Orchestrated CD accompaniment tracks are available on this website. These are the same tracks that are on the listening CDs without the piano
  • It is highly advised that you be very familiar with the music from the listening CDs in helping to learn to follow the accompaniment tracks. The ultimate goal is to play as if “the orchestra was following the piano” instead of the pianist following the track. Some arrangements are more difficult than others and are not consistent in level of proficiency or complexity of the orchestration.
  • The piano music for CD track can NOT be performed as “piano solo only” (unless noted). It is only performed with CD track accompaniment or organ part.

A Word from Linda

I sincerely hope that as you progress through this website, I may reflect a strong witness to my Christian faith and be an encouragement to you through my recordings on CD, or through the keyboard music and orchestrations that are now available from these recordings for you to perform.

About Linda

Linda grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, in a very musical family and started playing the piano at the age of four. As a 2nd grader, Linda remembers accompanying her 2nd grade class for their Christmas program. Unusual as it might seem, she loved to practice, play by ear, compose her own melodies, and had a real passion to express her young Christian faith through the hymns and choruses of the church.
