Meet the Author

Mary Sue Taylor has taught beginning piano, jazz, improvisation, chord study, and other related topics to a diverse array of students since 1956. She has also filled her share of musical requests, having played piano in the Atlanta area since 1954. Over the years, she has dusted the keys of nearly every piano in the Atlanta area, from formal society clubs to dim, smoke-filled jazz bars to the hottest house parties. She lives in Roswell, Georgia, with her husband, Jimmy.

Tere Stouffer is a freelance author and editor who has now broken into the double digits—this is her tenth book. She lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, with her chocolate Lab, Maxine, who kept her feet warm on many a late winter night spent working on this manuscript.
