Bach is an astronomer, discovering the most marvelous stars. Beethoven challenges the universe. I only try to express the soul and the heart of man.

My Love for Music was developed at an early age. My Moma and Daddy were musical and they instilled a desire and love for musical knowledge in me. They realized the added value of formal music instruction and I began formal training at age six. Moma and Daddy kept me in private lessons and I am so thankful to them for the sacrifices they made to realize my musical goals and desires. They attended the symphony, opera, and various concerts with me to gain exposure to both classical and other genre's of music. A memorable highlight was attending the Van Cliburn Internation Piano Competition in Texas. I Thank God that He allowed me to be born to my Moma and Daddy; I also thank God for giving the gift of music to me. I desire sincerely to use this gift for His glory.
....and with my song I praise Him....Psalms 28:7
