I've been making music in church as long as I can remember. As a matter of fact, the reason my parents signed me up for piano lessons when I was seven was because I would come home from church and plunk out the melodies of the hymns I had just heard. When I was in the sixth grade my aunt, who had been our church's organist for years, retired and there was no one in our small country church to take her place. So I quickly turned my attention to the organ. And the rest is history.
