Pastor Teresa Taylor and The Rock Church Temecula Valley Gospel Choir

 

 Teresa Taylor is a songwriter/vocalist/musician/producer who has been directly involved in Christian music for most of her life. She has been called “The Best-kept Secret in Christian Music.” Since receiving her music degree, she has worked in various churches as a music director in Florida, Maryland, and California. She has ministered at well-known national crusades and conferences, and on television and radio. She has also been involved in many national music ministry conferences teaching seminars on the art of songwriting, choral directing, piano/keyboard techniques, vocal techniques and computer sequencing.
With a varied style from jazz, black gospel or a contemporary pop sound, Teresa’s music appeals to young and old. She is versatile because she feels just as much at home while performing concerts or leading praise and worship for small groups or large conferences of thousands.
At present, Teresa has released five albums entitled “PURPLE HEART,” “WITH THESE HANDS,” “NO MORE FEAR,”  “WEIGHTLIFTER,” “SMOOTH HYMNS,” “POSSESSION,” and also just recently released the “BATTLE STATIONS” double CD of all original songs by The Rock Church Temecula Valley Worship Team
She has worked along with great Christian artists such as: Andrae Crouch, Mary, Mary; Kurt Carr, Deniece Williams, Tata Vega, Brent Jones, Ricky Grundy, Tonex, Jonathan Pierce, Bill and Renee Morris, Shawn Tubbs, Geron Davis, Janice Sjostrand, Vickie Yohe, Carman, Caleb Quay, Deezer D, Ron Kenoly, Lindell Cooley, Chris Falson, Michael Tait, Gloria Gaither, Lanny Wolfe, Pat Boone, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. and many others. Teresa has worked with well-known secular artists such as, Stevie Wonder, Kirk Whalum, Billy Preston, Michael Bolton, and Paul Jackson, Jr.
Teresa has taught private piano and voice lessons for almost 30 years.  Her students have ranged from those who learn purely for the joy of musical expression to those who are pursuing a career in music or are already involved on a professional level.  Over the years she has developed a passion for mentoring her students, striving to go beyond simply teaching theory or technique, but to become personally involved with her students’ musical goals, dreams and aspirations.
Teresa has been the Worship Arts Pastor at The Rock Church Temecula Valley for the past 13 years, and the President of His House Publishing.  She is also the co-owner of Sundae Music Group, an independent record label, and the founder of With These Hands, Inc., a non-profit corporation that helps families of those affected by catastrophic illness.
