Currently, Gale travels the word, giving concerts and conduction choir workshops. But her music ministry began at age three, when Gale’s parents first noticed that she was playing songs she heard at church. By age five she was a designated church pianist and began composing. Formal piano lessons began at age six and continued into her adult life. Mrs. Murphy obtained her Bachelor of Music Education in piano and voice at Southern Adventist University and her Master of Music Degree in Piano Performance from Memphis State University.
She’s was formerly a Music Educator at Forest Lake Academy in Florida for 10 years and have been an independent music artist for the last 5 years. Having earned accolades in music education circles as a skilled teacher of piano, choral conducting and vocal pedagogy, Gale, now holds the position of Director of Music and Education for the Negro Spiritual Scholarship Foundation of Orlando.
Gale is also the appointed pianist and clinician at the famed Hampton’s Minister’s Conference/Choir Directors and Organists Guild, held each summer in Hampton, Virginia. Gale has written more than four hundred and fifty compositions, and has a large body of art and recital song arrangements to her credit as well.
Gale’s source of inspiration is her husband of nearly three decades, William Murphy, who is a very talented bass player. Their three adult children are all musically talented.
