Terry Taylor is Managing Editor of Growing in Grace Children’s Music Curriculum, a comprehensive faith-based resource in use in over 1000 churches and schools in 40 states. From 1980-2012 Terry served as Minister of Music in churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Oklahoma. The son of a pastor, Terry was born in Bowling Green, KY. He received a BCM from Belmont University and a MCM from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Terry is widely respected for his creativity, advocacy, and leadership in music ministry with children. His advocacy initiatives gained national exposure when the American Choral Directors Association Choral Journal documented his ENCORE program, which led to the hiring of music teachers in Dothan City Schools. In 2007, Terry was presented the J. E. Saliba Friend of the Arts Award by the Dothan Cultural Arts Center. He has served as an adjunct professor at Samford University and as a board member of The Center for Christian Music Studies at Baylor University. His compositions are published by Choristers Guild and Growing in Grace. Terry is the founder and director of the Children’s Freedom Choir and Music City SoundTracks, which reach out to socially and economically challenged children in south Nashville.
Terry has two young-adult children, Carrie Beth and Jeremy, and three pretty-much-perfect grandchildren, Cayden, IsaBeall, and Hudson.
