Christina began playing for church at the age of 10 and began arranging hymns for specials and offertories shortly thereafter. The more she arranged, the more she loved the process and, as a young teenager, began dreaming of the day that her arrangements would be published.
This dream became a reality in 2016 when her first collection, Praise to the Lord, was published by Piano Pronto Publishing in Temecula, California. Praise to the Lord is a collection of 10 arrangements of traditional hymns. Each arrangement was developed for church pianists to easily read and perform with minimal rehearsal time.
Her second book, Praise to the Lord: Volume 2 (published in 2019 by Piano Pronto) was written for the advanced church pianist. Simplifications of these arrangements will be available soon through Piano Pronto.
All of Christina's hymn arrangements as well as her original compositions are available at: https://pianopronto.com/composers-community/christina-mathis/.
