Nancy grew up in Peterborough, Ontario and started playing piano at an early age, influenced by her father who could play anything by 'ear'. Her parents often had music night at their house where friends and family would gather to sing and play. During her working career, she continued with the piano and took up the guitar. She began to teach young children and their parents how to enjoy music through singing, playing piano, rhythm instruments and theory. A dreamer at heart, she loved to write poetry, then add melody to create songs for herself and her students who sometimes performed them at their annual concerts.
She has sang with several community choirs, including Sweet Adelines, Northumberland Orchestra and Choir and Choral Legacy. Her latest flight of fancy is the ukulele and this has brought her back full circle to writing more songs. She looks forward to expanding her horizons by joining S.A.C. and learning how to get her songs out there.
