About The Artist

Uniquely gifted.  Anointed.  Called.  These are just a few of the adjectives that accurately have been used to describe the artist, W. Timothy Bailey.  Not only is he a talented keyboardist, he is a composer, recording artist, music trascriptionist, published author, and highly respected workshop clinician.  Timothy is keyboardist and one of the founding members of the award-winning instrumental group New Creation.  He has studied and displayed proficiency on various instruments including the piano, violin, clarinet, saxophone, voice and organ.  While furthering his education at the
University of Kansas, he served as Minister of Music and Chief Musician at a local church leading the choir to record its premiere project consisting of songs composed, arranged and directed by Mr. Bailey.  He is one of the first African Americans - and perhaps the first - in the 100+ year history of the university to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Music Theory.  Additionally, Bailey holds an advanced certificate for 4 years of study in the Lucie E. Campbell Music Workshop.  He is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). His commitment to helping others put Jesus First in music led him to form JeFirst Music, LLC.  In his role as President and CEO, Bailey challenges choir members to grow from music to ministry - positively impacting the lives of people for the kingdom of God.  "Why be just a choir member when you can be a ministry-minded musician? ... God has blessed you with a unique power to encourage the broken hearted, challenge sinners to repentance and edify His saints.  God can work through your music to calm evil spirits.  Don't take that responsibility lightly."

Bailey's first book entitled Habits7 for Highly Effective Choir Rehearsals has been distributed throughout the continental United States.  He shares from over three decades of expertise in the field of music.  "In my many years of music involvement, I've attended more than a couple of ineffective rehearsals!"  This book, complete with a Bible study guide, presents practical, biblical principles to ensure effective rehearsals.

His most recent book is entitled The Be-Attitudes of God-honoring Excellence.  This offering is focused on encouraging instrumentalists to move from mediocrity to excellence.  We can smooth out those rough edges as we strive to produce music with the quality, clarity and brilliance of a rare and valuable diamond.  Extraordinary. Exceptional.  Nothing less than excellent.

Mr. Bailey has shared  his unique gift
throughout the country from Kansas to Kentucky to New York to Missouri and even Canada. Currently, he is a private piano instructor at Key Impact Studios and Blues to Bach Music Center as well as a member of the Adjunct Faculty at Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute and Theological Seminary.  He and his wife Andrea are the parents of two gifted musical artists who are poised to continue this musical legacy.
