As a classical pianist, I studied several instruments and picked up handbells. I was also fortunate to study composition and conducting years ago at Asbury University in the state of Kentucky, United States. Unless my pastor of worship of Cornerstone United Methodist Church of Watertown, South Dakota, United States, decides to have me perform my own arrangement of the hymn Nearer My God to Thee for handbells and piano at another time, my goal is to perform it with one another person from church on April 19th, 2019, which is Good Friday. In the meantime, I am getting the handbell equipment ready, as well as thinking of my own arrangement for such hymn. I have made mental arrangements on choral anthems and hymns in the past as needed for both piano and organ. I am working on expanding my arrangement capabilities with other instruments.
