Jesse Boyd is a French horn player and pianist living in Greenville South Carolina. He loves ministering for the Lord through music at his local church. He also loves composing and arranging and has a desire to set Psalms to music. He believes that music should be distinctly different than the musical culture of the world, and that the text of a song should be magnified through the music written to it.
Jesse studied piano and music composition under Nathan Arnold for 10 years, and Dr. Peter Davis for 2 years. He studied French horn under Mark Frederick through his freshman year of college. He now studies horn under Mrs. Jennette Schlimgen, piano under Mr. David Lehman. In the past, he has studied composition under Mrs. Joan Pinkston. He is a junior double major in both French horn and piano performance at Bob Jones University.
Jesse's desire is that he would write music that both glorifies the Lord and that listeners can enjoy.
