The Diving Board

Judith Pauley Markovich, Founder/President, received her B.M. in Music Education and was told to forget the clarinet and go be a wife and have babies. Five years later, she entered The Juilliard School and graduated with a Master’s in Performance. While in NYC, Judith performed on some prestigious stages, including Carnegie Recital Hall as a guest artist and lead an ensemble with the Lincoln Center Student Programs. She became the teaching assistant of the late, world-renowned Leon Russianoff.

Judith Pauley Markovich Founder/President

Judith has built success into instrumental music programs —public and private—across the U.S. She established a statewide junior high jazz contest in New Jersey. Though a contest winner and guest performer, she has been a beloved university instructor and co-principal clarinetist under Louis Lane. Having studied with Sam Storms, James Goll, Michael Sullivan, and Wes Adams, she earned her Associate in Theology and subsequently taught worship leaders at Grace Training Center under Mike Bickle in Missouri. She was on the pastoral teaching staff at Dominion Christian School where she ran the student band program and wrote or arranged their instrumental music. On the adult level, she recruited and trained musicians to improvise at Metro Christian Fellowship under the direction of Mike Bickle.

As a performer and composer, she has gleamed from her experience in orchestral, operatic, show music, chamber music, contemporary Christian worship and a touch of jazz. Judith’s unique, anointed improvisation has graced both worship teams and congregations. Judith moved to the Nashville area with her husband, Rich, in 2010 to establish the national hub of Global P.O.W.E.R. Network, Inc.

“…exceptional..has that special flare that eludes many musicians.” 

Franklin Cohen, principal clarinetist of the renowned Cleveland Orchestra

“…superbly equipped in being resourceful, imaginative…she is an impressive combination of maturity and professionalism on the one hand, and enthusiasm and strong motivation on the other…highest recommendation…”                                                

                                                                    Richard Killough, Director, NYC Lincoln Center Student Programs

“…beautiful sound…very insightful musicianship, transcends the technical difficulties of her instrument and phrases with great maturity and feeling. Her teaching instincts are sound and imaginative…students respond enthusiastically. I want to recommend her to you as strongly as I can. I am proud to have been her teacher and her friend and will watch her as her exciting career as musician and artist teacher unfolds.”

Leon Russianoff, Clarinet Instructor, The Juilliard School

She balances her passion to stop artistic attrition in the body of Christ with long phone calls to her sons and daughter-in-laws, her playful fluffy dog Harvest, Sudokus, gardening, humanitarian efforts, and fiction writing.

on his face. If anyone loves to serve, he does.

Underneath all his technical prowess, Rich’s generous heart for the least and the lost shines through. His love for the poor is not a badge he wears on his sleeve. Rather, it shows in his behind-the-scenes action. You would have to have been at the end of his driveway in the ’90s to know that, after a full day’s work, this humble man fixed rusty old cars in 10-degree weather with his bare hands for single moms strapped for funds, as his sons watched out the living room. He would have never told you.

As a musician, Rich boasts of his ability to play “O When the Saints” with his right pointer finger.
