Silvie Rider-Young was born and raised in Switzerland, with parts of her family living in France and Austria. Silvie discovered the Great World of Sound and Music at the age of 6 years at the piano, of her pastor-uncles house in Murten. She learned by experimenting on the piano, playing simple notes and chords for hours and by listening to the energy of the sound. Constant classical piano lessons followed later after this essential “key-childhood-experience” and she became absolutely mesmerized. Slivie continues to resonate with the World of Music and you can read more about her unique style on her website- http://silvierideryoung.com
