About the Artist: Around age 10 I began playing the piano and organ at church. Somewhere and sometime in the past 44 years, I have been transformed from playing for worship to being a worshipper and leading others in worship. The playing skills are much the same, but the application and attitude are different. I have been blessed with many experiences, solo worship concerts in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Europe, teaching with gifted worship leaders at major church conferences, to playing with Praise bands, all of which have contributed to my transformation. Of course, spiritual growth and interaction with other Christians and worship leaders has positively influenced my attitude. I hope to share my story in this blogspot to encourage you in your story and hope some of these words might cause you to begin to think outside the “Bachs” a bit as you mount your benches and prepare for a new “worship-ride”.
