Classically trained in piano and cello from an early age, I hungered for melody and song, finding my voice and picking up other instruments along the way – anything that could sing. Music lives in me and through me. In fact, I believe that we are all the very music of life – breathing, beating- hearted glorious things! To this day, I do not know what is more beautiful – the song itself or the rich afterglow of the following silence.
