Kerry Goodhind has always had a passion and flair for musical performance since her hands graced the keys of her first piano at the tender age of 5. She was heavily encouraged by her parents to listen to all kinds of music resulting in the development of her very eclectic ear. Check out her interview with Emma Joyce here:
