Cathy began piano lessons at the age of six, but quickly got bored. Her parents sold the piano when her mother found her lying on the piano stool trying to play with her toes! She found her love for music through marching band and high school choir and began to seriously study piano. She enrolled in the music program at West Virginia Wesleyan College, a small private college in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. There she studied piano, voice, music theory and history and choral conducting. She holds a bachelors degree in music with an applied major in piano. After two years of trying to decide whether to major in piano or voice, she finally chose piano. Her professor said that she didn’t really choose, she simply “decided to sing on the piano.” Her melodic style continues to sing through her compositions. Cathy has spent over 20 years in music ministry and has taught piano and voice for nearly 30 years. She has found her music voice and continues to compose and to be inspired by the beautiful sounds of nature and the music of many of her fellow solo piano artists. Like a Song (June 2012) rose to #23 on the Zone Music Reporter chart. Her other works include To See You Again (Sept 2013), which rose to #27 on the Zone Music Reporter chart and was nominated for Solo Piano Album of the Year by Enlightened Piano Radio and Let There Be Joy (October 2012), which was nominated for Holiday Album of the Year on SoloPiano.com. Her music can be heard on Soundscapes, Pandora, Galaxie CBC, iTunes, Enlightened Piano Radio, Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, Solo Piano Radio.com, Audiosyncracy and many other digital and terrestrial stations.
