Jane Moore - Pianist
 
I play the piano for the Sunday morning service and for the adult choir occasionally.  When not playing for the choir, I enjoy singing with them.
 
We moved to Turner County when I was 2, and except for an 11 year interlude, I have lived here all my life.  I started taking piano lessons in first grade and continued into college, where I majored in PE with a minor in music from Auburn. 
 
I grew up playing the piano in church, starting with children's choir when I was 10 or 11.  I have played the organ, but would much rather play the piano.
 
 My teaching career began and ended in Turner County after 30 years.  I began teaching PE to 5th and 6th graders, then moved to 3rd and 4th grades.  After a few years I moved into the classroom and went back to college to add Early Childhood to my degree.  Since I was back in the college mode, I continued on, getting my Master's and Specialist degrees.  I have been retired for 9 years now, and have enjoyed being able to spend time with the grandchildren.
 
I enjoy using the talent God gave me to play the piano for church.  I hope that I can be a blessing to someone each week and bring glory to Him!
