"I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live."
Amy Doerfler (DURF-ler) began her musical journey as a three-year-old at the piano on her grandmother's knee. Her art has run the gamut from concert pianist to choir director, opera composer to church accompanist, and most recently, from theory professor to writer of lullabies and worship leader. As a theorist, she has specialized in early American folk hymnody, and her passion for the genre is clear in her writing.
Her works, whether large or small, have always found their source in her main loves: her God, her family, her friends. Most recently, she has been passionate about setting large sections of scripture to music, with no repeats or alterations of the text, beginning with the book of 1 John. Her initial goal was simply to help herself and her family "hide God's word in their hearts" (Ps. 119:11). But she hopes your family might be blessed by this large-scale project as well.
Take a seat on the piano bench and sing along.
