Temple recalls “The first song I ever played was the ‘Hill Street Blues Theme Song’. I remember my mother asking me, “Who taught you how to play that? “ And I answered “me”.” That’s how it’s always been and how it will forever be as long as I live.” Later, Temple learned to play the cello, string bass, and acoustic guitar that developed her love for all types of music.
