Theresa Grayson -][- The Blood – [L2L Records, 2010]
“My music is a reflection of my heart. The melodies I play are the steps of my own experiences. My desire is to touch a special place in the listener’s heart and create a warm feeling of peace and happiness. I want the listener to leave smiling knowing that this was more than a concert. It was a life experience.”
Theresa is a Texas original born in Tyler and raised in Houston. She was exposed to music at the early age of four and learned to play all the woodwind instruments, the piano and guitar. At the age of eight, Theresa formed an unbreakable bond with the saxophone which led her to receiving accolades for her outstanding musicianship all through grade school. Theresa further developed her love of music when at the age of 12 she began playing for the church. It was in that dynamic she learned the soulful texture of gospel music which ingrained in her playing style.
Theresa further honed her skills and developed a greater passion under the tutelage of internationally known instructors/musicians Chuck Nolan, Dr. Woody Witt and Dr. Rod Cannon of Sam Houston State University and North Texas University. It was at the university she earned a degree in music performance and jazz studies. Theresa continued her love and knowledge of music by continuing her education and earning two master’s degrees with an emphasis in music education and leadership. She is currently working on her doctorate degree.–Theresa Grayson
