More about Janet Tebbel
Janet Tebbel began her carillon studies with R. Hudson Ladd at the University of Michigan and continued to play at the University of Rochester, New York, while earning a master’s degree in organ at the Eastman School of Music. With a grant from the Belgian-American Educational Foundation, she spent a year at the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium, studying with Piet van den Broek, and earned a final diploma from the school.
She has served as carillonneur of the First United Methodist Church of Germantown, playing the 50-bell Taylor carillon since 1979; and has also been the carillonneur of the Miraculous Medal Shrine, with a 47-bell Paccard/Bigelow carillon, since 2002. Tebbel has played recitals throughout North America and Europe, and became a carillonneur member of the Guild of Carillonneurs of North America in 1974. She served the Guild on the Board of Directors as corresponding secretary and on the Membership Enhancement Committee.
Since leaving full-time music teaching several years ago, Tebbel has held positions in music education, carillon playing, church organ work, and conducting handbell choirs have kept her busy.
