I began composing at age 7, when I concluded that reading notes took far too much time for me, and I could make up my own songs instead, just by tuning-in to the music playing in my heart. Still today, I struggle with notation (fail at it, really), and prefer to compose purely by ear, no sheet music allowed.
I found my voice a little “later” in life at the age of 16. After auditioning and making the cut for a teeny-tiny local musical, I felt like singing was an even bigger extension of my personal expression and held fast to it. Through the magic of the Internet I can share these musical ideas with all of you. ❤
