Lynn Blake John, composer, holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of Maryland and a Master’s degree in Education from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.  She studied composition with Peter Williams, professor emeritus of music at the University of Wales in Swansea and studied music theory at the Guildhall in London.  She played the flute, oboe, and bassoon and teaches piano and music composition. 


Whales sing but other than the clicks made by dolphins and other toothed whales, whale sounds remain mysterious.  It may be that whales use “echolocation” to identify potential prey and threats, or to find a mate.   Researchers believe that whale sounds can travel more than 10,000 miles in some levels of the ocean.
