I have a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in the U.S. I have worked as a Director of Music for two churches. My responsibilities included selecting and performing organ and piano works, small ensembles, and directing a handbell choir. I accompanied and occasionally directed an adult vocal choir, as well. I was responsible for maintaining the library and musical instruments, ordering supplies and music, budgeting the music department, and worked with other church staff members to plan religious holidays.
