Today we have the great privilege of learning how to listen to music from conductor, lecturer, composer, and writer Mr. John Hodges.
For 26 years Mr. Hodges was Music Director for various orchestras after finishing graduate studies in music at Indiana University in 1983. He has 14 years experience conducting, composing, and arranging music for churches. He has lectured extensively on the subjects of aesthetics, education, and music, and writes occasional articles for various publications on the arts. He held the position of Associate Professor of the Arts and Culture at Crichton College where he taught classes in worldview, history of arts and music, and reader’s theater; directed theater productions; and was the founding director of the Institute for the Arts and Cultural Apologetics. Most recently he has founded and directs the Center for Western Studies, a gap-year tutorial program that teaches college-aged students a Christian worldview and the history of Western ideas by way of the Great Books, art, music, and philosophy. He lives in Memphis with Day, his wife of 30 years, and they have one son Mason.
