Sharon Austad Bagley loves music. She sings, plays the piano, writes music and lyrics, and creates hymn arrangements. She is a happily married mother of 8 children and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, (LDS), both of which have served as motivation for her music.
Sharon has been involved in music all of her life. In her own words she recounts her background in music:
Interestingly enough, as a baby, I came very close to losing my hearing. I will be forever grateful for this precious gift, because since as early as I can remember, beautiful, sacred music has stirred my soul. My mother taught me to harmonize at an early age and by the age of 8, I was singing and performing duets with my 12 year old brother in many places and settings. I studied classical piano and voice from the finest teachers for many years, and sang in and accompanied for every choir from junior high through college; having received a music scholarship to Weber State University.
