“I was fascinated with the relationship music had with brain development & injury, and development & recovery"

my JOURNEY | krista garrett
I studied music early in life and it was difficult. I had to practice more than the other students and felt inadequate because of talent comparisons I would put myself through with peers and those evaluations I was subjected to by teachers. I was fortunate to go to an arts high school but the rigorous of comparison tore at my self-esteem and I left music behind.
I found myself teaching Psychology at the local community college for extra money and I would later meet a talented guitarist that had just started a music academy in our county.
To hear him talk about his work and his students, it renewed my passion for music on another level. I decided to join him at the Academy and I eventually took ownership of the Academy.
Garrett Music Academy is the little engine that could and as a result, my mission is to serve all the “fighters” that have a desire to play music, regardless of their age, circumstances or ability. Our doors are open to all!
