A local resident and teacher of South Carolina for over 10 years, Sharon Hopper began her musical journey at the age of 10. While in junior high, she received a curtain call for playing Edvard Grieg’s, Wedding Day at Troldhaugen., launching her decision to continue music professionally. She continued to enter and place in competitions and began teaching at the age of 16. Upon entering Bob Jones University as a Piano Performance major, Sharon continued to successfully teach, accompany, and perform. She has studied under Lydia Bardin, Alice Gingery, Dr. Peter Davis, and Dr. Carol Baskins. During that time she also attended Interlochen Music Camp as a staff member. Upon graduation, Sharon began teaching full time for Piano Central Music Studios, and she accompanied and performed on the side. She has also taught for Oconee Conservatory of Fine Arts. Accompanying for the musical, South Pacific, has been one of her favorite moments. She is also a flautist, and enjoys playing with the Greenville Concert Band when her schedule allows. Currently, she teaches privately and enjoys biking and spending time with her family. Sharon is married with two daughters.
