PM Lead Sheets

Pentecostal Musicians offers professionally prepared lead sheets with fuller chords and better chord progressions which will help you re-discover the power and anointing of classic gospel hymns and choruses and still be applicable to more contemporary songs.

Each song is provided in PDF format and will display and print a high-quality lead sheet containing the melody line and chords in a staffed format.

While we have used a vast supply of public domain hymns due to copyright limitations, the chords and chord progressions used can be adapted to most non-public domain or contemporary songs.

Level 1 songs include more than the normal three or four chord changes you see in many chord charts. However, we use simplified (user-friendly) chords and very easy fills. Chords include, major, minor, two chords, sus4, major7 and dominant 7th chords. For a sample of our Level 1 lead sheets click here Sample Level 1.

Level 2 songs use more advanced chords and fills. Chords include 9th, 11th and 13th chords and their alterations. For a sample of our level 2 lead sheets click here Sample Level 2.

Each downloadable song is available in several of the most requested key signatures giving you a choice of the key and level ability. Please note: Each song can be purchased in ANY CUSTOM KEY you want. For more information see the CUSTOM LEADSHEETS section of the PRODUCTS page.

PM Training Videos

Pentecostal Musicians offers a variety of free and small-charge video tutorial clips that can help take you from the basic foundations of learning to listen, learning chords, learning basic progressions, thinking in any key and to how to add in the fillers that make you sound like a well-seasoned musician.

Learn the beginning principles of building songs using a simple melody line and adding basic chords and chord progressions.

Learn to Pentecostalize (Gospelize) songs and move beyond just "chording." Add in the fills (in-between goodies) getting you out of the I, IV, V box.

So that you will have a varied repertoire of common chord progressions, we teach a variety of finger movements and passing chords. For example: Moving from the I to IV is one of the most common so we have clips showing several ways to make this move. Getting out-of-the box tends to enhance your playing ability.

   More About Us!
   

It is hard to believe that it has been over 20 years (1999) since we put up our first Pentecostal Musicians web site. So many things have changed since then. Recently, my husband Mark, decided that our web site needed a refresh. He built this new site from scratch and wanted to give it a more modern look and feel. Because most things are now digital and there is little need to ship physical items any longer, Mark included purchasing digital downloads of our products into the web site. Hopefully, you will find the site easy to navigate and find media which will help you to become more accomplished in playing music that lifts and exalts our Lord Jesus Christ. Since this is a new site, please let us know if you run across any glitches or problems.

As for myself. . . I can honestly tell you that I have no memories of a time when I couldn’t just sit down at the piano and play a song! We had a player piano in our home and apparently, I was totally fascinated and loved to watch as the piano magically played the rolls. I guess I told my parents one day, “I can do that!” Sure enough, I showed them that I could. My Mom said it wasn’t just the single notes of a song that a child would play but triads and fills. I was age 3 when I started to play. As I got older, I wanted to “understand” what I was playing so I could communicate with other musicians. I began learning more music theory in order to be able to share with those who played by ear and those who were classically trained. I’m proud (in a Godly way) to say that I have students who are now in pastoral ministry, in missions or head up music departments in churches and Bible Colleges.

My husband and I have been retired now for a few years and have been thankful for every moment—except maybe for the getting older part. We still plan to create more content and make it available as we “have time.” So stop by every now and then and check out what we have new.

God Bless!

We have created professional lead sheets in two different ability levels. Each song builds upon—but moves beyond just the three or four basic chord changes in a song. Each song is provided in PDF format and will display and print a high-quality lead sheet containing the melody line and chords in a staffed format.

Our video tutorials will teach you how to use lead sheets and play worship choruses and songs from the hymnal with a Pentecostal (Gospel) feel.

In Matthew 25, Jesus tells us the parable of the talents. Remember one man was given five talents, one man two talents, and one man one talent. The men who were given the five and two talents invested their talents and doubled them. Sadly, the man with the one talent allowed fear to stop him and he "buried" his talent. As a result, the man who buried his talent came to an unpleasant end and the one talent he had was then given to the man with the ten talents.

No matter how large or small your musical "talent" is at the present time, let us help you invest and grow it to be used for the glory of the Lord!
