Audrey Goodman


Audrey Goodman’s love of music awakened as a toddler singing songs with her mother and blossomed into a lifetime dedicated to music. She attended Shorter University where she earned a Bachelor of Music in Worship and Music leadership, a unique degree which blends music education, vocal performance, music technology, and theology. She took piano lessons throughout grade school and for two years of college. She played flute in the band setting for eight years and marched five of those years, including one year of collegiate band. Her passion for voice ignited in her church youth band and continued throughout her collegiate career as she pursued classical training. She sang in multiple choral ensembles and co-founded the touring worship band Seventh Hill Worship. Audrey has sung as a professional worship leader for ten years, and enjoys blending classical vocal technique with the contemporary vocal style. Audrey considers it a wonderful gift to grow in the love of music with all of her students!
