  • Music has been a part of Helen Mumphrey’s life since she began “piddling around on the piano” at age 3.

    At age 9, she began taking piano lessons with Mrs. Dewey Akers.

    “At that time, it was 75 cents a half hour,” Mumphrey recalls. “It was still hard to come up with it, but my mother did. She made sure I got that training.”

    Though she learned to read music, she initially learned to play the songs she was taught by memorizing the movements of Mrs. Akers’ hands when she introduced each piece of music.
