About the artist
Associate : BMI
I recently self-published "Jazzy Hymn Arrangements" books One, Two, Three, Four and "Jazzy Christmas Arrangements-3rd Edition". These books are aimed at the intermediate church musician. All these books are available at http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/search?Ntt=Phil+Hamm Also, at SheetMusicPlus.com, I have self-published intermediate jazzy versions of many single pieces. My books are also available at JWPepper.com and Amazon.com
I give praise to God and many thanks to Kjos Publishing Company for the publication of “Ragtime and Blues” books One and Two, catalog numbers WP 1173 and WP 1174. These fun pieces are tailored for the late elementary and early intermediate pianist. They are available at various online dealers or at your local music store. As a follow up to the Kjos Ragtime and Blues Books, I have self-published "Blues, Ragtime and Swing". Also, I have self-published “Give God The Glory” books one and two for beginners. They are patterned after the “Merry Christmas From Middle C” books published by Kjos in 2012 and have a jazzy re-harmonized accompaniment.
I was raised in Indiana. I attended Austin Peay and Indiana State Universities and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music education. I played professionally in Houston, Tx for nearly 20 years, before starting a teaching business, which I have done now for 20 years. I have been back in Southwestern Indiana since 2006 giving piano and guitar lessons to homeschoolers and afterschoolers in the student's home.
I enjoy writing instrumental music and arranging serious pieces and hymns in public domain for myself and my students. Also, I have taken the pianist position at my local church.
I have found several of my arrangements being offered at other web sites. I would be glad for you to link your site to this one, but please do not post my work for download at another site. Thank you. (Hide extended text) ... (Read all)
