Welcome to the NPM Section for Pianists

The NPM Section for Pianists is composed of musicians who primarily use the piano for leading worship in their communities, as well as those musicians who would like a better working knowledge of using the piano in their worship. This NPM section is here to assist you in your ministry, as you lead the assembly in musical and liturgical prayer.


Over the past few years, the use of piano in Roman Catholic worship has seen a dramatic increase. The NPM Section for Pianists is one of the fastest growing sections of NPM.

The role of this section is to:

  • offer educational opportunities to expand the skill level of pianists through NPM conventions and institutes
  • provide resources and information on repertoire, educational opportunities, and instruments
  • promote certification opportunities for pianists, including assistance with those choosing a piano emphasis for DMMD certification

Please feel free to contact the Standing Committee for Pianists. We would love to hear from you. You may want to consider becoming a member of this fast growing section. Suggestions for links, reference, resource or repertoire are always welcome.
