The passion for music was stirred in me at the age of 5. I studied private piano for 10 years. My studies included methodology, style, and technique. I began performing solo vocals at the age of 5 at my church in Tupelo, Mississippi. I began private piano instruction at the age 8 and continued for 10 years. Music continues to be my passion. I find fulfillment in helping others discover and utilize the gift of music within.
