Alto Section Leader
Growing up in the town of Pittsburg, Texas, Gooding was an avid singer and pianist. She did not become part of an organized choir until she was in high school. Still, her talents were evident and friends and family encouraged her to pursue a career in music. She set her college sights on the UH Moores School of Music and is graduating with her bachelor’s degree and plans to return to UH to pursue graduate studies. Her goal is to become a teacher, so she can share her love for music.
“Since coming to UH, I've learned a great deal about music, but I also have learned about teamwork, leadership and functioning within a larger group to realize a goal,” she said. “I also discovered a passion for teaching others to sing.”
