Taryn R. Thomas

Taryn R. Thomas, MA, MT-BC, a native of Mamaroneck N.Y, began playing the piano by ear at the age of four. Without being classically trained, Taryn nurtured this God-given gift in the Pentecostal church. As a child she played organ and piano for worship services at Strait Gate Church in Mamaroneck, where she learned the importance of serving the community as well as serving God. As a young girl, she used her gift in hospitals, correctional facilities, and children’s homes throughout Westchester County. As an adult, she attended National University in San Diego California, completing her BA in interdisciplinary studies. Her love for children led her to work in early childhood education as a teacher and administrator for over 20 years. Through prayer, Taryn realized that she could combine her love for children with her love for music, and she made an important life change. She attended New York University, where she completed the Master of Arts in Music Therapy in 2009. She now works as a board certified music therapist for The Music Therapy Institute at the Music Conservatory of Westchester in White Plains N.Y., and at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Taryn is currently a member and organist for the Redeemed Church Mount Vernon NY, where Rev. Richard A. Garner is the Pastor. This debut album of original music represents the uniting of Taryn’s spiritual and professional identities through the use of her God-given gift.
