(January 2012) Hi everyone! My name is Patricia Jacobsen and I currently live in Brooklyn, New York. I joined the PSR Tutorial website about 6 months ago. I am married and have two daughters; with six grandchildren, which I adore. I have been a bookkeeper for most of my life until my company went out of business eight years ago. Right now I am working as a matron for handicap children transporting them to and from school. I work a few hours a day and I have the summer off.
My musical background is not much. Growing up we did have a piano, but we could not afford lessons. I used to number the keys and play a few songs, hoping one day to pursue lessons.
One year for Christmas my daughters gave me piano lessons as a Christmas present knowing how much I loved music. I had an older man as teacher that used to play an organ for a church. I only took lessons for six months. That was the best present I ever received. (You’re never too old to learn)
I am so happy I found this website, I love it and the members are so kind and helpful. I would also like to thank Joe for all his help and encouragement to become a performer.
