I first met Ed Kaizer on a golf course when he was my opponent in a city golf tournament. Truth is, I missed hearing his last name accurately-I thought he said "Kahler.

Of course, Ed wanted to be precisely that. I bet you will agree with her after reading this story about Professor Edward Kaizer, an amazing gentleman, a masterful teacher, a world-class musician, and a wonderful husband and father. Ed has brought fame and honor to himself, to Bradley University, and to his wife and wonderful family. He is indeed among Peoria's top ambassadors.
Just Being a Boy Ed lived in Cramer, Pennsylvania, with a large, rather unique family, considering his father and many uncles were all musicians and played in a band together.
Dr. Kaizer, when first asked to come to Bradley University, refused the position. However, after four years at St. Norbert, he finally agreed to come to Peoria. Ed remains at Bradley University today as professor of music and professor of keyboard studies. He is a busy, popular teacher, touching the lives of all the students who have chosen music as the major part of their lives.
Musical Journeys "My wife Janet and I raised five kids," Ed explains, "four of which are musically inclined. When our family plays together, we call it an interaction. At one time or another, Ed, Janet and the kids traveled together, and each of the children went on to be educated in their chosen fields. "We traveled over most of the world, playing music in our sister city in Germany, and so many other cities in Europe. We were visitors more than tourists, playing concerts in Mexico, Italy, London, Czechoslovakia and across the U.S.A. We were such an energetic bunch, they started calling us 'Those crazy Americans.'"
Ed has an office in Constance Hall at Bradley, and I was surprised to see how small it was.
Just in the last five or six years, Dr. Kaizer has been involved with over 2,000 concerts and musical events that took him all over the world, including a very busy local commitment. When he's not busy at his church, he is an accomplished composer, and still manages to find time for personal sessions with his talented students. Of course, he keeps one eye out for the local golf courses, and plays as much as he possibly can. Local folks have seen him perform with his classical jazz group on WTVP, and in November, a new series of shows will be aired.
A Fabulous Life Ed is a classical pianist, but his love for jazz, especially classical jazz, is apparent as he talks, his fingers on the piano keys. He showed me how even a simple tune like "Happy Birthday" can come alive beneath his talented fingers. I pulled him up on my computer, and there was his entire musical family playing a rousing interpretation of "Boogie Woogie. The joy on their faces tells a story of two marvelous parents and one enormously talented, happy family. Check them out: they have CDs available, and Ed welcomes you to call him at (309) 677-2598.
