He received his Bachelor of Arts degrees in English Literature and Music from Wabash College, and his Master of Music in Choral Conducting from Westminster Choir College.

Samuel truly believes that all humans have the innate ability to sing and encourages anyone who wants to explore their musicality to come to a Chancel Choir rehearsal or to reach out to him.

My first job, while a student, was at The Jenkintown United Methodist Church where I assisted Dr. Lois Hedner at the Organ and with the Choirs.

When I moved to Cumberland Maryland I became the Organist/Choir Master at the Historic Emmanuel Episcopal Church. While in Maryland I was elected to “Who’s Who Among Outstanding Young Women in America”.

Upon moving back to the Philadelphia area I served as Organist/Director of a graded Choir Program, singing and Hand Bells, at Jenkintown United Methodist Church, Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church, Langhorne United Methodist Church and Woodside Presbyterian Church.

Ephesians 3:14-19

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
