At an early age, Sam was introduced to Blues, R&B Soul, and Gospel through her family of instrumental musicians.  As she reflects, music jam sessions on the weekend were a time to come together. Plus it was a space to learn the music history behind each artist and their works.  Around age 7, Sam fell in love with watching marching bands perform in parades. So she watched them on t.v. and around the Pine Belt area.  With persuasion from her father and Kenny G’s melodious sounds, Sam began saxophone lessons. Then she joined band in the 6th grade. By high school she placed first chair in most ensembles and competitions.  Exploring other areas of music, Sam decided in 10th grade to march baritone. In addition, she joined the newly established show choir.

After high school, her talents afforded her the opportunity to travel and a full ride college scholarship.  Sam became a Music Educator after she received her Bachelor’s degree. Also she taught K-12 Music in public schools for five years.
