Born and raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, Rod Clemmons gravitated towards the piano at the tender age of three-years-old. Though he was born blind, Clemmons came from a very musically inclined family and he never let his disability hamper his love for music. Clemmons parents nurtured his gift from day one as he was taught by a faculty member at the local university where his father worked as a professor. Clemmons continued his musical training and general education attending the Arkansas School for the Blind in Little Rock. Throughout his high school years he performed in several piano competitions, received numerous awards and even appeared on the popular local Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) musical program "The Minor Key,” hosted by the late jazz performer Art Porter.
