About Us
Dave and Jean Perry have been writing and publishing songs for schools and churches for over forty years. Their music has been performed by choirs in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, North America and Australia. They have over four hundred songs in print and are recipients of multiple special composers awards from ASCAP. Before retiring, Dave and Jean were both active in the choral music field. Jean was a junior high choral director for seventeen years and an elementary general music teacher and choir director for eight years. Dave was a high school choral director for twenty-eight years who, at times, also taught musical theater, music theory, guitar and humanities. Both Dave and Jean are recipients of the Music Educator of the Year Award from the Arizona Music Education Association. In addition to their school jobs, the Perrys spent many years directing and accompanying church and community choirs. Both are members of ACDA and NafME. Having spent most of their professional lives in Arizona, they now call Oceanside, California their home. They continue to travel, write music and enjoy connections with Southern California music activities.
