Today we’d like to introduce you to John Fluker.
John, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was always interested in the piano because growing up there was always one in our home. My sister Sharyn played the piano, but stopped after high school. When I started piano around 7 years of age I only quit at the age of 13 because I got a weekly gig playing hymns in a very small church. It was my Father who told me that I wasn’t as good as I thought I was and that I should return to weekly piano lessons. The lessons paid off and I received a full music scholarship to the University of Arkansas At Pine Bluff, which was my Father’s Alma Mater and studied piano with Michael Bates.
