Mary Woolf Pearson performs this evening’s live music. She began her love of piano before she could barely reach the keys. Taught by her creative mother from age two, Mary was classically trained and finessed her unique interpretive style from there. Mary upholds her own private instruction studio in Byron, IL, and continues as a church music director, both of which she has done for 20+ years. She earned a BA in Psychology with a concentration in Music, and several complimentary music courses in her repertoire.
