Garrett began playing piano when she was four years old. By age 8, she made an appearance on NBCâ€™s â€œThe Ellen DeGeneres Show. By 9, she rleased her first album and she hasnâ€™t looked back.
Garrett has performed as a soloist worldwide, with shows in the U.S., Japan and Europe, and appeared regularly with symphony orchestras across the United States and around the world.
Most recently at age 13, she was granted a prestigious title of the Young Steinway Artist, an honor only awarded to todayâ€™s most acclaimed young artists.
