Music was an avocation. Ann played piano and organ in churches in childhood and teen years, then again as a young adult, primarily as a substitute. Fast forward to the past 10 years, and more opportunities occurred to play in churches here in Maine. She has served as the music director at Deer Isle-Sunset Congregational Church for the past thirteen months. Ann’s music education was scattered and sparse, a great deal of it self-taught.
Ann is grateful to Gerald Wheeler, who graciously tutored her during his last two years at First Congregational Church. She will continue her organ studies with Kevin Birch. Ann plays piano and French horn, and sings with some local ensembles. Her special interest is re-purposing discarded fishing rope to craft useful objects.
