Lauren Keiser

Lauren Keiser was a passionate music publisher. He worked with many of the top publishing companies over his long and distinguished career including Alfred, Cherry Lane, Carl Fischer and his own firm the Keiser Music Publishing Company. In 2012 he purchased Southern Music and renamed the company Keiser Southern Music, where he worked long and hard to create new products taking advantage of developments in technology. As a result the company provided innovative DVDs and interactive method programs that won awards and helped change the way people bought and used print music. As president of the Music Publishers Association he addressed concerns of illegal downloads and created a much-praised campaign to educate school administrators and school boards as to what are the legal uses of print music. Lauren was also an award winning composer whose works included Ballade for Strings, Allegretto from Symphony No 7 and Eros for Strings which was premiered in 2007 at the Moscow Autumn New Music Festival.
