About don kellar
I am just an ordinary "closet musician" I have had some music training when I was a kid, and now find it very relaxing to sit and "make music". All of the compositions are created on the fly. I just sit and play and what happens, happens. Then tracks are added to spice it up bit and give it some color. Hope you like them.
My formal music training includes classical piano, organ and voice(choral arranging and directing). My informal training(taught myself) includes guitar, flutes of various kinds(endblown -Quena,Anazazi etc., fipple/block flutes - recorders, native american, pennywhistles etc.), Saxaphone, Clarinet, Baritone.
I have many hobbies and not enough lifetime! I enjoy painting, photography(all photos on this site are mine), flutemaking(many of the melodies in my songs are on flutes I have made). Health and wellbeing(yoga, meditation and exercise fitness)are becoming more important as I get older. Many intellectual hobbies as well(such as Early Christian Origins, cosmology, cosmogony and comparative religions).
Who am I? I have a bachelors degree in Theology, a masters degree in Divinity (Pastoral Degree), a doctorate of dental surgery. I am a practicing dentist in southern California for the past 20 years. Before that I pastored in a Christian Denomination for 10 years. I have two children and two grandchildren and have been married(to the same woman) for 40 years (I married young!!)(Young at heart anyway!)
My music was and is not intended for commercial purposes. I compose to create peace and a feeling of wellbeing. Most of my music will put you right to sleep. But I hope it also uplifts you.
