Becky Bradley, Organist/Pianist
Becky started taking piano lessons in Kindergarten and then began playing the organ in 6th grade. She’s dabbled with flute, guitar, and string bass in the past, but keyboard is her forte. Becky started accompanying her school choruses while in 4th grade and accompanied undergraduate music majors in college. Her professional church organist duties include an Episcopalian church (2 years), a Presbyterian church (20 years), and an Evangelische Kirche in Germany (9 years). She has also been musical director of an Army Community Theater when living in Germany. Becky is a retired teacher of high school students with learning disabilities, and now operates her own medical billing/transcribing business and Shaklee MLM out of her home. Since she doesn’t like to practice, she’s kept music as her hobby!
