She spends hours each day practicing instruments, whether it’s flute, organ or piano. Those around her have all witnessed her dedication.
Her mom, Nancy Doyle, says her daughter is determined in anything she does.
“She’s very dedicated to her music, always works hard,” Nancy says. “She’s very focused and sets goals. And then she, you know, has complete determination to meet her goals, and she sticks with it. She never quits.”
That determination and dedication carries over into Doyle’s work life, too, and the church finds the time she puts into practice impressive.
John Sharp, her manager at Saint Michael the Archangel Church, says despite her shy and soft-spoken nature, he knew she’d be a great asset to the church.
“She’s very quiet, very reserved, very shy, but there was something about her that just struck me that she would fit in really well,” he says. “We’re very impressed with her. I know the pastor is very happy with her.”
Though Doyle isn’t one to brag on her talents, she has even turned the heads of other musicians and singers. Sharp says his dad was a Fulbright scholar for organ and heard Doyle play at church once.
Sharp says his dad applauded her work and was impressed at her skill level, being so new to the instrument.
“Thumbs up for her, because he was quite an accomplished organist,” Sharp says.
