Welcome to our page. My life has always been filled with music. It has spoken to AND for me, soothed me and helped me connect with others. It has been my hobby AND my therapy. I am passionate about helping others through the powerful tool of music.
Enjoy our site.  We would like to help you find your better self through making music.                      -Karen Skipper
