About the Author
Dr. Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra loved singing hymns as a child, and began playing the piano for classroom singing from third grade on. Pamela teaches young children through post-doctoral students. She served as Professor of Music and Director of the Collegium Musicum at Bethany College and Eastern Michigan University, and as Senior Researcher at the Göteborg Organ Art Center in Sweden. Ruiter-Feenstra’s passion for children, choral music, early music, liturgy, historic keyboard instruments, and improvisation coalesce in her vocation as performing and recording artist, pedagogue, composer, author, and conductor. Author of the acclaimed Bach and the Art of Improvisation (CHI Press) and artist of four CDs on organ and harpsichord (see www.loftrecordings.com and www.fleurdeson.com), Pamela developed Muse over a decade of working with children to nurture their imaginations, find their calm centers, to learn optimal self-care and care for the earth, and to find and cherish their own voices, as their singing provides a portal to lifelong learning. Among my favorite things: enjoying my cherished family, collecting burgundy- and amber-veined leaves on golden autumn days, leading ensembles to join their voices in song in transformative community, hearing the waves of Lake Michigan and feeling the sand and water dance over my toes, playing historic organs in northern Europe where the pure sounds feed my soul, learning new languages as musical communication in context, African hair braiding, ice skating and cross country skiing in remote places, to hear the range of “swish, chu, fluhn, and creech” sounds of ice and snow at varying conditions painting my eardrums. www.pamelaruiterfeenstra.com
