Basic musical instruments found across Nigerian churches that feature in worship musical performances are electronic keyboards of various capacities and quality, but a few big churches and Cathedral still have a big organ or pipe organ which they use for congregational singing or choir anthems. Other musical instruments are drum-set, guitars (bass and lead), saxophone, trumpet, konga-drum, talking-drum, put-drum, gong, maracas, and a few others that are peculiar to regions. 

The application or use of these sets of instruments in worship for performance could vary from one region to another according to the availability, and the level of competency of instrumentalists present to accompany the singing, irrespective of musical genre and style being performed.
