Musikhaus began as a private teaching studio in Rapid City, South Dakota. I was joined by my wife Michelle in 2000. She eventually became the primary instructor for the studio and I began to focus on other professional endeavors such as ChoralNet, Dakota Voices, and transcribing, editing, and arranging music for ensembles in the USA and abroad.

When Michelle and I relocated to Fort Myers, Florida in 2018, Musikhaus ended as a studio. I am now retired from university and church choral activity and Michelle is a mental health counselor. Having been encouraged by many to make our music available to others, I have created this website to disseminate unpublished manuscripts of various types of music.

I am indebted to my friend David Topping who, again after 25 years, has assisted me in creating a website. If you have need of any website assistance, I urge you to follow his link.

To My Old Brown Earth

A series of hyperlinks below sum up better than anything I could write how this earth is headed for disaster … at least for most lifeforms on the planet. Insects and reptiles might survive. This won’t happen in my lifetime, but by the time my children are old, they will struggle with many problems brought on by the greed and selfishness of older generations.

Florida in Autumn

The seasons in Florida are very different than those in the north. It’s even different from Arizona, based on my hazy memories from the early 1980s.
