Jeannine and her organ students

Picture 16 squares in a multi-colored quilt. A quilt in which each square tells a different and unique story with a history that is like no one else’s. That quilt is Jeannine’s organ studio and the squares (sorry just turned out that way) in the quilt are her organ students. They are part of a small affirming community that uniquely encourages and supports each other. Granted I like to see how they are making progress, but what I am really engrossed with is how they are so very supportive of each other. It’s amazing. Having gotten two degrees in music, I’m not used to musicians being very nice to each other. Huh.

Those students range in ages from 8 to infinity and enjoy playing and listening to each other. Most of the time the students hit home runs. Sometimes they don’t. But if they don’t there’s no fear that someone is going to “shake their heads” (Psalm 109:25) It’s a community of which more people should be a part. It’s a great way to build up your courage, experience, and oh yes, your organ skills.
