Melinda Starnes is a schoolteacher who has devoted her life to integrating the arts in education. She is currently on medical leave without pay. A neuromuscular disease has decided to slow her down, causing her to face early retirement due to permanent disability. She is working hard on promoting her music, now that she has time (and needs the money). She also, has a great desire to become a successful composer. Serendipity is her first release and has sold several thousand copies simply by word of mouth. Most people who purchase this CD come back for more to give to others. Her music is played in classrooms, restaurants, cancer-treatment facilities, dance studios, exercise classes, and in many automobiles and homes. This is a 'you won't be disappointed' CD...a must have for those who are interested in a solidly written, recorded, and produced 'album'. You're guaranteed to want to play it over and over. It will be a great investment...a fine addition to your musical collection.
