Read on to find out how MissG started her music career. MissG has been self-employed as a teacher of Piano, Organ and Guitar since 1970. She taught in York, Pennsylvania until 1975, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee until 1990 and since then in Indialantic and Satellite Beach, Florida. In 1972 she began composing songs in the Classical, Pop, Jazz, and Country genres and submitting them to various Publishers on Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee. To date over 300 of her songs have been published. In 1982 MissG opened her own full line Music Store and Music School with ten teachers in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In 1984 she took on additional duties as Staff Writer, Audio and Recording Specialist, and Studio Musician for several Music Publishing Companies in Nashville, which continued, until her 1990 relocation to Florida. In 1986 MissG began developing concepts, conceived during her years of teaching, for a music education program for young children that makes learning music fun. She created a demonstration version intended for children ages 4 to 12 titled 'Little House of Music' and introduced it into her teaching. It included 105 original songs by MissG. In 1987, J. Aaron Brown and Associates of Nashville, a leading publisher of children's music, published 'Little House of Music'. From 1988 until 1990, MissG taught the 'Little House of Music' Program in all seven Murfreesboro Elementary Schools. During this time she also arranged and produced a Cassette Tape featuring ninety-six children singing Christmas songs, two of which were original MissG songs. The proceeds of the cassette sales went to a supervised, after-school program for 'latch-key' children. In 1990, MissG moved to Indialantic, Florida and continued teaching LHOM, Piano, Organ and Guitar as well as further development of the 'Little House of Music' program. She also began performing professionally at the piano. In 1993, MissG acquired all rights to the 'Little House of Music' program from her Nashville publisher and obtained a Copyright. She then directed her efforts towards readying the program for commercial sale. In 1996 she completed the master tracks and vocals for Levels 1, 2 and 3 and began test marketing the program to Pre-schools, Children's Theaters and private groups. In 1997, Miss completed and trademarked all 'Little House of Music' products and formed two Production and Publishing companies, GFEDCBA Music Productions affiliated with BMI and I?m a Star Music Productions affiliated with ASCAP. As President and CEO MissG oversees all operations of the two companies. Under the 'Little House of Music' label, MissG has also produced several other CDs: Dancing Four O'Clocks containing eleven original instrumentals; six CDs featuring over 100 original children's songs from the 'Little House of Music' collection - I'm Drug Free, If It Wasn'?t For My Mother, I'm A Kid From The USA, I'?m Proud of Me, I'm A Star, and Sunday's Child. Other CDs released by MissG are The Lemon Concerto and Why Do They Call It Bluegrass. MissG presently has a School of Music with over 70 students, has songwriting workshops for children, participates in the NARAS 'Grammy in the Schools' program in Florida, has her students perform in concerts and participating in garage bands in her music room!
