He Will Come Again
Arranged by Rosalie N. Peterson
At the age of six, my sweet grandmother began teaching me how to play the piano. Lessons continued with various teachers as I attended grade school and then into college. Classical music became my focus with Chopin as a favorite composer. While in high school I participated in a Bach competition. The judges were very kind in their critique as I forgot half of the notes and skipped to the end abruptly. Later I was able to achieve an outstanding performance in another competition. As a college student in piano performance, my Freshman Recital was a highlight in my performing ability.
I am grateful to have Church callings which allow me to use the talent I have gained. I accompanied Ward choirs, played for Primary and Relief Society, plus accompanied many musical groups and soloists. I accompanied school choirs and a community choir--each experience bringing me joy and satisfaction.
My musical interests include singing in choirs when I am not accompanying. Currently, I teach 18 students and enjoy the creative experience I have with each individual. I dabble at playing the ukulele and have used this instrument to provide a sing along for a memory care/assisted living facility. I also have written two melodies to create songs for two different poems written by family members.
