If he's into piano, Jim Brickman's cds are great. They are more along the contemporary side and some of the songs have lyrics, but the majority is him and his piano.

I can't think of too many instrumental cds with a Christian label attatched. Mainly because there is no substance but music to the song. I would check out some movie soundtracks.

Jessie Cook. He's not Christian...but to tell you the truth, if there are no words, it doesn't really matter.

Not fully an instrumental band, and not Christian label either (but they are Christians), Nickelcreek has some great instrumental stuff. It's blue grass style (acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin); i don't like blue grass, but i love their stuff.

I really wouldn't know any christian labeled artists that are instrumental. If you are into some amazing technicality you should get a Liquid Tension Experiment cd. It's all instrumental and its absolutely amazing :-D

Oh, George Winston is absolutely amazing. He is more of a folk pianist..not a Christian label, but he is fabulous. He's performed at my little backwoods university twice in a row. He plays in white socks and jeans. He is so humble in his performance but such beautiful music comes from his hands! You can hear some samples of his music at www.amazon.com.

I read about him in Donald Miller's book "Prayer and the art of Volkswagen Maintenance."

That's true. There's no such thing as a "Christian" note. An A# is just an A# and so on and so forth . . . you can't go wrong with instrumental music. :)

Film soundtracks make for amazing instrumental listens, particularly if they're by a good composer(obviously). For film soundtracks I would highly recommend Chronicles of Narnia by Harry Gregson-Williams.
For actual instrumental stuff, I am a huge fan of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, although to be fair they do have vocals on a fair amount of songs, but nothing obscene. On the contrary, their lyrics skew spiritual on multiple tracks.
