Fran grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania behind a Catholic Church and school. Oftentimes she could hear the choir practicing because the choir loft was within ear shot of her bedroom window. Fran has always had a good ear for music, composed her first little piece in third grade, taught herself how to play the guitar at 14 and was a folksinger/songwriter playing in various venues in PA in the late 1960s when she was a teenager.
Fran has studied music off an on over the years. Sister Regina in third grade, and Renata Laufer when Fran lived in NYC. Renata was an accompanist to major opera singers during WWII in Europe. Most of Fran's schooling in music is self taught by books and by listening and by practicing improvisational works at the piano for many years. Fran took a music theory course at the Manhattan School of Music in the late 1970's. In 2008 she began to compose via a keyboard into GarageBand which enabled her to create multiple layers of tracks in one piece to create little symphonies or soundtracks in many genres. She then began to put some of her creations online and has been doing so ever since.

Special Note: It is only by the love and grace of God that I can breathe, walk, play a single note of music. Before I set out to compose anything I say a special prayer that I may be an instrument of the Lord's Peace. That comes from the Prayer of St. Francis - "Lord, let me be an instrument of your Peace."
Peace and Love to you and thank you for having a listen. Please help support this artist's ability to continue bringing music to you by purchasing her albums and/or sharing her links with your friends who might like her music too.
