Dr. Barry Liesch

I’m a Canadian, born in Vancouver B.C., and professor of music at Biola University (LA area) for a long time! I was a college student for 12 years –yes, I’m not exaggerating! –and attended two universities in Canada and two in the States. I was fortunate to work with pulitzer prize winner Bernard Rands and be the T.A. for pulitzer prize winner Roger Reynolds. Awarded Ph.D. from University of California, San Diego.  I head up the Music in Worship program in the Music Conservatory and love working with our students. I’m a worship leader, keyboardist, arranger, published author of two worship books, and performer/arranger for several albums & CDs.

http://sawaworld.org/articles/sawa-world-volunteer-profile-neera-ghai I’ve got a computer story that I think you’ll find interesting. I came to Biola as a prof in 1974. Bought my first MAC computer in 1984. Anyone who had a personal computer at Biola those days was using only floppies–and only for word-processing. The big question on everyone’s mind was “What else can you do with the thing, anyway?”  It wasn’t very clear. No computer photos, media. No music. No email. No internet until around 1993.

To show you how times have changed technologically, consider this. The first Biola faculty member to buy an external hard drive, purchased one with only five (5) megs.
I was the second person–and bought one with 20 megs (unheard of then). I was told that I would never need any more hard drive storage my entire life!  Twenty megs, though, cost me (hold your breath) $950!  Using my computer, I became the first person to send in a book for publication at Zondervan on a floppy disk in 1988. I’m excited to be able to use the amazing software today, and hope I can make a contribution to your life.  Prov. 3:5-6.

    Cheap Xanax Pills Online I hope you remember me from my worship minor audition last week. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the advice and opportunity. I am now taking as many piano/theory lessons I can. I know the Lord has gifted me with an amazing voice as you said, but I must push myself harder. Thank for your consideration into your program, and I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. http://justiceventures.org/category/update/field-update/page/2/ I am a professor at Kentucky Christian University and oversee the Worship Arts degree. I recently ran across Bob Barrett’s book on my shelf “Contemporary Music Styles” and was interested in adopting it for one of my theory classes. When I searched Bob’s websight it gave me links to worship info.com and I found your Theory books there but was unable to find where to order them…

  3. Dr. Liesch,
    My name is Marvin Jones, and I am a worship pastor in Nashville, TN. I have been in my present position for 22 years. I am also an adjunct professor at our denominations local University. I am scheduled to teach “The Church Music Minister” course in the fall of 2015. I am looking closely at your book, “The New Worship.” Would you happen to have study guides, or lecture notes from the book that I could utilize in my class?
    Thank you for any assistance you may be able to give.
