An Experienced Performer & Church Musician

As a recipient of the Gertrude Beckman organ scholarship from 14th St. CRC in Holland, MI, I began studying the organ during my junior year of high school in 2010. Since then, I have established connections with several area churches as a substitute organist and pianist, ranging anywhere from Christian Reformed, Reformed, Presbyterian, and United Methodist denominations. Past teachers include Dr. Huw Lewis (FRCO) and Nancy Mulder.

    • Attended services, concerts, & masterclasses at churches in central London and colleges at Cambridge University
    • Performed on various instruments at churches and established connections with world-class musicians
  • Hope College Chapel Choir organist 2014-2016. This included concerts and spring tours, in addition to being a chorister and serving as President of the ensemble.
