That is Why We Teach Music

Not because we expect you to major in music
Not because we expect you to play or sing all your life
Not so you can relax
Not so you can have fun

BUT --- so you will be human
              so you will recognize beauty
              so you will be sensitive
              so you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world
              so you will have something to cling to
              so you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good ---
               in short, more life.

Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?

THAT IS WHY WE TEACH MUSIC!

One of the best devices that I discovered was the Sonuus Midi Product, the i2M Musicport Signal Converter (see AMAZON).  I foresee this device going on my next years’ Christmas list!

For copyrighted songs, the place to go is mySongBook.  It's discussed at the guitar Pro website as well. The…

Choir Director at Zion Lutheran Church

I was introduced to the congregation today as the new choir director. I was teasing one congregation member that there was now a "empty seat" in the bass section (my chair) that needed to be filled. To my surprise, he said that he would be willing to join us! Yeah! Now we have 5 sopranos, 3 altos, 3 tenors, and now, once again, 3 basses.
