Kori’s saga of her musical quest to share her soul stemmed from her childhood. Ever since Kori can remember, music has always painted imagery in her mind. She was always listening to something on the record player in her home in Minnesota and Texas.
Her favorites were Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass Band as well as many of her classical favorites. ” I remember when I was little, and sitting next to the record player putting my head down to the speakers to hear everything going on”, says Kori. ” I was amazed at the varied instrumentation that brought the songs I loved so much together”. Kori also had a tape player with headphones ” I would fall asleep listening to John William’s “Star Wars Soundtrack”.
She heard the Beatles on the radio and began to plunk out tunes on the piano and as she figured out the songs without any musical knowledge, she knew that she wanted to play the piano right then. She took piano lessons, listened to many varied artists and at age 14 began to compose music.
Ps. Happy Birthday Nina :))) well
