Tracey Craig McKibben earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Pensacola Christian College where she studied with Daniel Nagy and Daisy de Luca Jaffe. Since graduate school, she has taught piano lessons in both school and studio settings. For over two decades, Tracey has taught students of all ages to instill in them a love of music and the technical proficiency to achieve their dreams.

Tracey began composing and arranging while in college. What began as a hobby quickly developed into a lifelong passion for creating music. Many of her early piano and string arrangements were created at the request of students and colleagues. Tracey has served in many church music leadership roles including music director, choir director for both adult and children's choirs, pianist, accompanist, and handbell director. Tracey lives in Dayton, Ohio, with her husband and son. She also has a step-daughter and two eccentric but lovable cats.
