Her first public performance of an original tune, ?Ballet Dancers?, was at age at a grade-school assembly, and she's been involved in performances (both on stage and backstage) ever since. While her 20 years of formal classical training included violin, viola, piano and reeds, her creative desires spurred her to also explore jazz, world music, folk, pop/musicals and rock music.
