Composer of the month – Phillip Keveren


Composer for February…Phillip Keveren!

Background

Phil Keveren  is an American pianist and composer. He is a co-author of the popular Hal Leonard Student Piano Library method books (see photo below).  His “The Philip Keveren Series” are very popular. These books are arrangements of popular, religious, traditional tunes – the music that you often hear, yet the originals are too challenging for late-elementary to intermediate-level piano students.
