There are not enough superlatives to describe the experience of having Linda as a guest artist. Not only is she a lovely, gifted and talented person. She is also the epitome of graciousness and flexibility which can indeed be rare in the world of "celebrity status". Linda has done what most arrangers have always attempted to do - share their faith through music, a language without words, without preaching, but still conveying the very presence, power, and majesty of God.

God is good. One of His greatest blessings to me in 1997 was the joy of sitting under your anointed ministry in worship and music at the concert Friday night...It is not often that I have a worship experience that is as God-honoring, uplifting and awe-inspiring as that. I didn’t want to see the concert/service end. What I saw demonstrated is much more than talent. It is super-human, supernatural, a spiritual gift from God that enables you to hear from Him and put music together in the tremendous way you do... What you do definitely has its source in Heaven.

Linda is available for personal performances, either in concert, leading music at retreats or conferences, or playing piano arrangements at churches and celebration events. In her concerts, she interacts with the audience, has them sing along at various times, explains the text of a song, and teaches them a musical line which draws them into "why I compose the music a certain way to express the music without words". There are various emotions in Linda's music...from total joy and the desire to clap along.... to times of reflection. Her music "draws the people" into what she is playing.....inspirational, expressive, and compelling.
I sincerely hope that as you progress through this website, I may reflect a strong witness to my Christian faith and be an encouragement to you through my recordings on CD, or through the keyboard music and orchestrations that are now available from these recordings for you to perform.
Linda grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, in a very musical family and started playing the piano at the age of four. As a 2nd grader, Linda remembers accompanying her 2nd grade class for their Christmas program. Unusual as it might seem, she loved to practice, play by ear, compose her own melodies, and had a real passion to express her young Christian faith through the hymns and choruses of the church.
