Using MIDI Files

Why MIDI?

MIDI is a music standard file (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and can be played on most computers / tablets / phones (with the right app) as well as loaded by most digital pianos (or other instruments). Once loaded you can transpose, change the tempo (speed) to suit the congregation.



How can I load these on my digital piano?

A lot of digital pianos have the ability to load MIDI. Usually you can load a memory card or disc (depending on how old your piano is) but it may be possible to use a USB stick. Check if you have a disc drive whether this connects to the piano using a USB cable. If it does then it is likely you can plug a USB stick in place of the cable for the disc drive. See the bottom two pictures.

You will need to download the files in order to play them (unless you have internet access in your church.) Right click on the file as shown on below, (or the name of the hymn in the case of the other hymns page,) and select “Save target as…” which will open up a new window asking you where you want to save the file. Save on your pc / laptop if using that or onto a USB stick, memory card or other device that will load onto a digital piano.
