About Doc

Learn about Doc's music services and history


Doc has composed over 50 pieces, primarily sacred pieces to be performed by choruses in church, school and community.  Choral music arrangements in the gospel tradition are his most popular pieces sought by choir conductors. The piano parts are clearly written out, which makes it easier and more appealing to pianists who read music, but are not familiar with playing in the Gospel style.  In addition to composing in the Gospel genre, Dr. Hampton has also created Spirituals, Psalms to be chanted, a Mass setting, Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis and selected hymn accompaniments for both piano and organ.  Doc’s compositions are available in this website’s Store.


Dr. Keith Hampton’s primary passion for music comes from playing and performing on the organ.  Classically trained, Doc has degrees from Westminster Choir College, Marywood University and Northwestern University.  Dr. Hampton has studied with J. Edward Hoy, James Litton, Robert Carwithen, Clifford Balshaw, McNeal Robinson, David Schrader and Wolfgang Rubsam.  Doc holds Associate, ChoirMaster and Service Playing certificates from the American Guild of Organists.
