Teaching: Creative Hymn Playing

Hymn playing can — and should — be a lot of fun. Good hymn playing requires not only a mastery of the instrument, but also attention to the text, imagination, and flexibility.

I enjoy bringing the text on the page to life through thoughtful registration, creative introductions, bridge, reharmonizations, and free accompaniments.

You can get a sense of my style by heading on over to the shop, or by listening to some of the audio samples below:

  • DIADEMATA

  • NICAEA

  • ROYAL OAK

  • WESTMINSTER ABBEY

I always offer a free 30-minute consultation for new prospective students. This is an opportunity to get to know each other a little, for us both to see if it would be a good fit, and for me to formulate an idea of what your (or your child’s) interests and goals are.
