Lily Topolski Music is a ministry aimed at providing encouragement through instrumental hymns and sheet music for pianists of all ages and levels, from elementary to advanced.

I got my start in piano music at a very early age. My grandpa has taught me all my life from the time I was three years old (and still teaches me!) and trained me in classical piano music.

My grandpa was not only the one who first introduced me to piano music in general, but he was also the one to introduce me to Southern Gospel music. After exploring the genre and discovering many amazing piano players who were within it, I grew to love the music style, and decided that I also wanted to be a Southern Gospel musician.

In order to play this genre of music, it was very important that I learn to play by ear, since up until that time I had only played sheet music. When I started taking lessons from Josh Singletary, my by ear playing really took off. He and my grandpa were such a huge help to me in learning to play by ear! They have been a huge blessing to me!

As I continued to learn, I started to arrange hymns. The more I arranged, the more I discovered that I loved doing it! As time went by, I decided to become an arranger and provide Christian music for others to listen to and play. My quest to learn how to play by ear has morphed into a love of arranging old hymns!

Looking back, I can see how God has had His hand on me, protecting me and providing me with the people I needed to help me get where He wants me to be: serving Him with the gifts and talents He has given to me. He used my initial desire to play Southern Gospel to steer me in the direction of arranging hymns.

My hope is that the recordings/CDs I have made will remind people of God’s love for them and remind them that they are not alone. Music is a very powerful tool and I am trying to use that tool to help encourage Christians in their walk with the Lord. Not only is music a powerful tool, but so are words. That is part of the reason I have so many lyric videos. The words in the songs (typically hymns) that I do are such encouraging, helpful lyrics penned by amazing writers. I pray that the words and music in these songs will bring people peace and hope in the promises of God.

I also create sheet music for many of the arrangements I have recorded and sell them on my website. My hope is to provide Christian sheet music for pianists no matter what age they are. Even with the digital age that we live in, I have met many pianists who say that it is so difficult to find sheet music to play anymore. It is those pianists in particular that I really hope to help. I know how it feels to not know where to find the type of sheet music that I like best, so hopefully this website may become a place for pianists to more easily find piano solo hymns. My goal is to have many different styles of music in all of the difficulty levels including elementary, intermediate, and advanced.

Ultimately, I pray that God will use the gifts and talents He has given me to help and encourage other Christians!

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

1 Peter 4:10-11 ESV
