B i o g r a p h y
I began playing piano at the age of 16. After church, I would sit at the piano and amuse myself until my parents finished talking and were ready to go home. One night I suddenly found myself playing "Sweet Hour Of Prayer", and from there my love for music began to grow. Since I could not read music, it was difficult to learn new songs at first, but I gradually learned chords, notes, and later learned to read a little music.
The music I play is the joy and passion that burns inside me, the love of music and the thrill of bringing happiness and excitement to others through my God-given talent. My first love has always been Gospel music, but I enjoy playing a wide range of styles and types of music. Over the years, I have learned some country songs, oldies, a few rock/pop songs, and have written a number of original songs as well, that I hope to be performing soon.
After 40 years of playing piano, I can't imagine life without it. Music is my reason for being, my answer to stress and depression, my present to all those who hear me play. I invite you to listen to my music, and let it take you away from your everyday life, and bring you energy, peace, joy, and love.
