Paula Arlich comes from a very musical family, so it is no surprise that she was gifted with a special musical talent of her own. Her family realized this when at the age of 3, she kicked her Uncle John (film composer John Williams) off the piano saying "my turn" and played for the first time. Her grandfather (Johnny Williams - drummer for the Raymond Scott Quintette) believed she had the "musical gene".
At the age of 12, Paula began composing simple melodies.  "She'd sit at the piano and just play whatever came out, and we were all amazed how beautiful they were! Composing came very easy for her", her mother said.  "She'd play for hours and her melodies were very soothing and peaceful."

Under the guidance of Doris Morioka, she completed the Certificate of Merit Program through the Whittier Branch of Music Teacher's Association in 1983, earning numerous awards and honors for her talent.
After earning her BA in Business Administration, Paula continued to perform live for public and private events,  piano bars and lounges, for church services with youth groups, worship teams, and choirs.  In 1998, she began teaching Kindermusic for the New Community Lutheran Preschool. In 2000, she became Musical Director for Broadway High/Starz Musical Theater company playing for more than 20 musical productions.  
Performing with other musicians has always been a true joy for Paula, and she has played the piano/keyboard for a variety of musical groups including "Believer", "YNT", and “Guilty Conscience”.
