Music professor Edward ...

Music professor Edward Kaizer will bid farewell to the Hilltop this year after his retirement.

Kaizer worked at Bradley for 45 years teaching music history, piano pedagogy, piano literature and music appreciation. He also served as the coordinator and director of keyboard studies.
"Bradley was a friendly and supportive institution," Kaizer said. "I always felt the institution had the potential and the faculty to continue to grow and conquer the many challenges of the various facets of education. I also felt that Bradley would become a leader of mid-sized colleges in developing and graduating the future leaders and well educated members of our future society."
During his time at Bradley, Kaizer and his wife, Janet, performed at chamber music recitals, jazz concerts, lecture recitals, solo recitals, orchestra concerts and radio shows. The on-campus performances have taken place across Bradley's campus.
"Dr. Kaizer was my piano instructor when I took lessons with him … He also was my music history teacher as well as my academic advisor," senior elementary education and music double major Josh Friedenberg said.
...
"I learned a lot from Dr. Kaizer. He was one of the most influential professors that I've had in college."
Before Bradley, Kaizer taught for four years at St. Norbert College in Green Bay, Wisconsin. His teacher from the University of Indiana recommended him for this position, and he was accepted.
"I am sure that Dr. Kaizer will continue to practice and perform even in retirement, since that is what he loves to do," John Jost, professor of music and director of choral activities, said.
...
"One of Dr. Kaizer's best qualities is his absolute love of music and his willingness to perform for any audience no matter how big or small, from European concert halls to Peoria nursing homes."
Bradley's faculty and students said they were sad to see Dr. Kaizer leave, and they admired his teaching abilities and willingness to help or answer questions.
"In terms of [Kaizer's] life at Bradley, I think his most important quality is his boundless passion for music, for the way that music moves people's hearts and minds and spirits," Robert Prescott, associate professor of English and assistant dean of undergraduate studies for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said.
...
As for retirement plans, Kaizer said he looks forward to continued piano practice and jazz studies. He also plans to spend time with his wife and family as well as play some golf.
"[It was about] the joy and satisfaction of working with students to assist them to develop their potential and abilities in their piano performance," Kaizer said. "The guiding of students to prepare for their graduate entrance exams and knowing that some would go on to earn terminal degrees and share with others the concepts and techniques they learned here was fulfilling and rewards."
A retirement reception for Kaizer will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Founder's Room.

I first met Ed Kaizer on ...

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.
