Jeff Reeves served on the Choristers Guild staff from 2000-2009 as Music and Literary Editor. Jeff has served as Music Editor for LifeWay Church Resources, Abingdon Press, and World Library Publications. He is the author of numerous publications including music curriculum materials (preschool-grade 6), teaching articles, as well as choral and handbell works for children of all ages.
Since 1990, Jeff has specialized in the field of church music for children. His work in both the music publishing industry and the local church has given him the unique opportunity to understand the needs of children’s choirs within the larger ecumenical community. The resulting passion is Jeff’s drive to develop products and services that meet those diverse needs.
As a choral director, Jeff previously served as Minister of Music for churches in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee. He also worked with the preparatory choirs in the Nashville Children’s Choir from 1995-1998. Currently, Jeff serves as Music Associate at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
Jeff received a Bachelor of Music degree (magna cum laude) from Oklahoma Baptist University, and the Master of Church Music from Southern Theological Seminary.
Jeff and his partner, John Paradowski, live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with their dog, Chester.
