Music by Judith L. Maggs
 
 

Welcome to my page. I'm a musician living in Western NY who enjoys not only playing and singing music, but occasionally writing some of my own. I hope to share some of my pieces on this site.

I have a degree in Music Education from SUNY College at Potsdam, Crane School of Music. I taught private piano for over 30 years, but am currently taking a teaching break - maybe temporary, maybe permanent. We'll see! I loved to write pieces for my students, sometimes as motivation, sometimes to fit their current needs, and sometimes just for pure fun. I hope to post several of my favorites.

I also am the Music Director at our church, where I play the organ/piano and direct our small choir. I've written several anthems for the choir. Because my group is small, my pieces are very accessible for small choirs, and are generally pretty easy to learn. We don't have high sopranos, so I tend avoid the big dramatic high endings that seem to be common in a lot of published anthems.

Enjoy!
