PSR-3000 / PSR-2000

(Aug, 2003) I received my undergraduate degree and two graduate degrees from Central Missouri State University and a doctorate in educational administration from Oklahoma State University.

For 39 years I was an educator serving as a high school science teacher, high school principal and college academic advisor. I retired from Central Missouri University in 1996 where I was the Registrar and Director of Student Records.

I began my musical career on the clarinet in the fourth grade and took piano lessons from the age of 12 to 16. After receiving a tenor saxophone for my 16th birthday, I began playing clarinet and saxophone in small bars and clubs, which I continued for about 10 years. As I pursued my career in education, however, I quit playing in public and only played for the amusement of my family and close friends. In 1978 I obtained a Wurlitzer electric organ and mainly played it and my wife’s Yamaha piano until I purchased a PSR-2000 in December 2002. I play from music and fake books. My keyboard playing has always been based around chords and improvision. I play primarily for my own amusement, but I have played for a few service clubs and retirement homes.

Update: Bob now has a PSR-3000 and his 22nd volume is the first one with his new keyboard!

midi Bob provided 300 songs in midi format. These were created on the PSR-3000 or the PSR-2000. Individual songs are shown in the table below and any one song can be downloaded by right-clicking on the song link. The table displays the song title, tempo (T), time signature (TS), lyrics (L), chords (C), where possible, the style used, the original volume (V), and the keyboard used (K).

You can download all of Bob's 300 MIDI songs in two zip files: PSR-2000 files: BB-2k.zip, PSR-3000 files: BB-3k.zip.
