Accompanying

I have been accompanying vocalists and instrumentalists since I was in grade school.  I stepped down from the chorus risers once my teachers figured out that I could play the piano and sight read really well at age 9.  This continued through grammar school, high school, college, and in the church.  I spent more time on the accompanying music for juries than my own stuff!  But it was a great way to get familiar with different styles and composers.
