I began piano study at the age of 7. However, after three teachers in three different states and five years in John Thompson Book 1, I was on no one's list of "Most Likely To Succeed At Piano." Thankfully, my parents were willing to persevere and unwilling to consider quitting an option, and by the age of 13, I began to accompany worship and play offertories at church.
I earned my B.A. and M.A. in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Pensacola Christian College where I studied piano with Daniel Nagy and Daisy de Luca Jaffe. Following graduate school, I taught music in two private schools before transitioning to teaching private piano lessons in my own studio.
I am currently working on my first piano album titled The Welsh Collection. This is a collection of solo piano arrangements based on Welsh Hymns. The first two pieces, ARFON and Here Is Love, Vast As the Ocean, are available now, with more to come. Sheet music for all pieces is available on the Sacred Sheet Music website.
