Jerry Phelps

     Director of Music Ministry

      Born and raised in Louisiana, Jerry has a unique and dynamic vocal styling that clearly reflects the varied, eclectic musical environment of his youth which includes rhythm and blues, zydeco, and gospel to name a few. After honing his skills in performance, piano, voice, and earning Bachelor and Master of Music Education degrees, he has become a sought-after classroom and private music educator within the New York City community where he currently resides and continues to develop school music programs full time for NYC public and public charter schools.

      Past accolades include Jerry being named quarter finalist for the Grammy Music Educator Award by the Recording Academy and The Grammy Foundation out of over 30,000 nominations, along with obtaining a Carnegie Hall Choral Fellowship from 2012-2013. He has served as accompanist, voice teacher, musical director, and vocal coach to a variety of churches, organizations, and private clients.

      We are excited and feel blessed that Jerry's journey has led him to Alexandria First Presbyterian.
