My name is J.P. Dennis. I started my musical training in the sixth grade in Rockwood, Tennessee. I played the saxophone in the marching, concert, and jazz bands throughout high school. I started taking piano lessons from Ms. Tina Pemberton in January of 2003 and wrote my first piece shortly after. I quickly became interested in composition and was encouraged by my band director, Christopher Metcalfe, to purchase the Finale music notation software. Basically, I was hooked after that. I had several performances of my compositions starting with the Rockwood Band and then later with students at Roane State and Tennessee Technological University.
