Leadership:

Music Director & Executive Committee

Director: Thomas L. DeBusk


Thomas took piano & organ lessons for many years, but, alas, didn’t show much musical promise. Then he signed up for a college music theory class, and suddenly music made sense! He’s been playing catch-up ever since.

It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention: Thomas served as a church music director for 10 years and started arranging music for handbells, choir, and other instruments during that time, because he needed simpler arrangements for minimally-experienced musicians.

So Thomas has a heart for wanna-be musicians whose enthusiasm exceeds their talent. His best attributes as a director are his patience and his ability to teach. He works hard at breaking difficult passages down into bite-sized, conquerable portions. His day job is working as an attorney in courts throughout the New River Valley.
