Bio: At the age of 7, Desiree began her music career in a youth choir at Calavary Baptist Church in NYC. She began piecing together her passion for music when she started piano lessons at the age of 9. She ventured into other instruments like the violin and saxophone, playing both instruments in her JR High School Band. Piano became the instrument of her choice throughout high school as she participated in competitions like Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens, and NAACP ACT-SO. Desiree was chosen to play in a traveling Jazz Band, where she developed Jazz techniques like playing by ear and improvisation. After starting college, Desiree joined a local singing group in NYC called One Accord, and she began teaching piano simultaneously to enhance her singing and piano teaching skills. To date, Desiree continues to teach piano and sing as the Assistant Music Director at The Worship Center in Woodbridge VA.
