Ms. Good has a degree in music composition from Columbia College where she studied composing, voice, performance and creative writing. She was a Weisman Memorial Scholar in Music, and was fortunate enough to be mentored by jazz composers Doug Lofstrom and William Russo.
Ms. Good credits her opera-singing mother for exposing her to musicals of all types, especially the work of Stephen Schwartz and Rodgers and Hammerstein. She recalls recreating one of her all time favorites, “Godspell,” in her living room with her twin sister on a weekly basis when they were kids.
She also collaborates with music/video artist Daniel Carlson. Previously a “diehard urbanite”, she recently relocated to Charlottesville, VA after discovering she had deep Virginia roots and needed some fresh Blue Ridge air. She divides her time between east and west coasts.
