Growing up, I couldn't go to music school because my parents could only afford to pay for my older sister. I was the one who would watch my sister and wish that I could learn piano too!
When I was about 16, I bought a keyboard...
That was the beginning of my alone time with God and playing piano. As a full time student getting my teaching degree, I would sometimes post videos of myself playing certain songs for only about 20 seconds (roughly) – I was so nervous!
After I got married, finished my studies, and took time off from our young adults worship group due to having a baby, I felt like I wasn’t doing much for God’s Kingdom.
I was alone at home just singing to the Lord when I asked Him what He wanted me to do in the season I was in. I felt compelled to go back to posting videos – but this time, make them actual tutorials of full songs. I felt like there are so many people who just need someone to SHOW them, and I felt like the goal was just to show and be of help to others.
I got started right away! Even though I didn’t even have all the equipment and resources! My camera would fall over on the keyboard during recording and Eileen (my daughter) would sing her way through while I recorded. Good times.
So much has changed since then – but my goal remains – I’m just here to show you how I play and be of help to you. We’re part of His Kingdom, let’s see it flourish!
