About Richard England

I am married to Dr. Barbara England, and we are beginning our 24th year at FHU. We have four children, seven grandchildren, and enjoy spending as much time as we can with them. During my tenure at FHU it has been a privilege to work with the graduate and undergraduate programs in education; graduate program in counseling; and especially the Department of Fine Arts in music. My wife and I have taken several student groups to Europe as a part of FHU's International Studies Program to study art and music in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Scotland, England, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Italy, and Vatican City. As a family we have also been privileged to be a part of church work in Scotland, Belgium, France, Republic of Mauritius, Poland and Haiti. It has been a great honor to have been a guest speaker at several conferences and universities, including four conference speaking engagements at Oxford University in England (psychology and music); working with multiple Tony nominated Broadway musical star Laura Osnes in a workshop with our students at FHU; accompanying our music students as they recorded their original works at Dark Horse Recording Studios; and most recently being selected for the pianoSonoma workshop at Juilliard to study with Michael Shinn (Juilliard/Boston Conservatory/Berklee); Jessica Chow Shinn (Juilliard); and Jihea Hong-Park (Julliard/New York Philharmonic); and accompany Doori Na, violinist (Juilliard). As a professor at FHU, it's also been great to nominate, assist with auditions, and then watch selected students perform at New York's Carnegie Hall as part of an honors program.
