Dear Ms Lois,
After all these years of being taught by you, I have truly come to appreciate playing the piano, whether I am great at it or not. Since 3rd grade, you have patiently sat with me (Kevin too) as I finished, though slowly, several books. I have grown to really love and appreciate the piano and the music that is produced. Thank you for the once in a lifetime experience. I am writing to you to say that I will not be returning for piano lessons. The reason being is I am near senior year and college applications are just around the corner, in faIl. I will still continue to practice and even learn from Kevin! Thank you for all your dedication because you have made a huge impact on my life.
I’ve listened to your CDs and they are both exquisitely beautiful. The hymns are lovely, the instrumentation interesting, and the keyboards expressive. The spirituals are beyond beautiful—heart-stopping, really— rich with passionate yearning, anguish, tenderness. This is a masterpiece, in my opinion. Thank you so much for sharing these with me, and congratulations on a remarkable musical tribute to the heritage of spiritual music.
Very best wishes,
The anniversary concert series continued yesterday afternoon in spectacular fashion. Dr. Ruth Bass Green took us on a musical journey, chronicling events in her life seen through the prism of music. She was ably assisted by some of her students, son, granddaughter, colleagues and her “village”. Thank you and congratulations to Dr. Bass Green for a memorable concert.

I received this as a gift and all I can say is WOW. It is sooo beautiful. I think I listened to it all day everyday for the past week. This album is many things, soothing, uplifting, soaring yet down to earth, stirring, sad/happy, spiritual, universal, gorgeous… it’s the best rendition I’ve ever heard of what it means to be human in relationship with the divine. The timing and artistry of the piano is exquisite! (And I don’t usually talk this way!!) I’ve purchased two more copies just now because it’s the perfect gift for friends who have experienced a loss. I think this is universal music that transcends categories because it’s so beautifully done.
Statement from Susan from Boulder
This is an absolutely beautiful, soothing album. I stumbled on it by accident, brought it home and fell in love with it. Her rendition of Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen is the best I’ve ever heard. Beautiful piano arrangements with light orchestration – well produced – soothing to the soul. It’s my “go to” album when I just want to relax.
Statement from Snowbound
I want to let you know how wonderfully, powerful the CD is.
It is part of my morning practice. And yes, when I am “going through” it still allows me to cry.
When I hear the first chord I relax and begin going to that sacred place to hear the “still small voice.”
You have been such a blessing. Thank you for letting God use you to speak to me.
Bless you abundantly and exceedingly well.
