About the music

This arrangement of Be Thou My Vision represents my first attempt at composing for solo guitar. It
was 2003 and I was a freshman at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. I remember sitting on
my couch at home and discovering this wonderful melody in a hymnal. The tune was printed in E flat
(which is not ideal for the guitar) so I opted for D major in drop-D tuning. After the arrangement was
complete, I showed it to my teacher, Scott Johnston. He was excited about the piece and asked me to
perform it at my upcoming jury. I sketched out a rough copy of the score and brought it to the final
exam. After the performance, the jurors made some nice comments about the arrangement and I
left. It was this experience which inspired me to continue composing and now, looking back, I am so
thankful for all of the similar encouragements God has provided along the way.
