Synopsis--

Jerald Franklin Archer was born in Kentucky in 1964. Shortly afterwards he lived in Indianapolis, Indiana where he began to study the violin at the age of nine as part of an elementary school program. Later, in High School he studied privately with several symphonic violinists who prepared him for University studies. Mr. Archer later studied at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana as a Music Education major with a minor in violin performance. Here he also undertook personal studies in Theory and Composition as well as Folk Music studies and Music History, in particular the authentic performances of the Baroque and Classical Eras. After college, Mr. Archer began his professional career in performing with various bluegrass and classic country bands in Indianapolis as well as private concerts of Classical Music for weddings and corporate affairs. He has won various awards for his violin/fiddle playing. Other musical opportunities took him to various parts of the United States, including performing in many venues and casinos in Las Vegas and Nashville. He has enjoyed his musical career for over 23 years. In 2001 Mr. Archer undertook to write a collection of keyboard music entitled "The Garden of Harmony, Op. 1". This work included 36 short pieces, or Contra-Dances based on original fiddle tunes he had jotted down for 15 years. The original title was "The Country-Fiddle Player" which was written for the melody line alone. Online, he offers a free work, 12 Preludes for Organ, Op. 2, Dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Mr. Archer currently lives in Indianapolis and is active in both violin performance, composition and teaching.
