Faculty Spotlight: Drew Pace
Each month we will be featuring one of our Conservatory Faculty. Drew Pace, along with our newest additions of Music theory and Composition, teaches piano, organ and harpsichord. We asked him, “Why should students study Music theory and composition?” and he replied:
“Music theory demystifies the practical side of music’s power by enhancing our understanding of how it moves, breathes, and comes alive. Just as a poet must master his language before writing beautiful prose, so we as musicians must come to understand the theory of music if we wish to deepen our understanding and more fitfully praise our Creator!”
Student Spotlight: Grahm Burns
Central Florida Chapter
American Guild of Organists
The Central Florida Chapter is pleased to announce Grahm Burns of Belleview has been awarded the The Benjamin T. Lane Scholarship of Excellence.
Grahm has studied organ for two years and piano for six years. He is a student of Dr. Terry Yount. His goal is to study organ in college and continue to bring joy to others through performance.
Because Grahm also received the CFAGO Scholarship in 2019, he will be asked to perform at a Chapter event in the coming program year. We look forward to hearing Grahm at the organ.
The Benjamin T. Lane Scholarship of Excellence is supported through contributions from chapter members and from special events.
