Organist/Pianist

About Melanie

I have served as organist/pianist at FBC Lafayette since January 2005.

I grew up in a rural area near Crawfordsville, IN. Piano study was at DePauw University and in Indianapolis and later organ study at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI. I graduated from the University of Indianapolis and Indiana University. Following college I moved to Munster, Indiana for a public school music teaching position but soon started teaching piano full time and playing organ at several different churches in the northwest Indiana/Chicago area.

I later decided to move back “home” to central Indiana. After looking at several areas I decided to locate in Lafayette and what a blessing I have found at FBC Lafayette – God is in control!!! I have never thought of church playing as a “performance” but a form of worship for myself and as a source to draw those in the congregation closer to God and Christ.

My “hobbies” include gardening and being a “mother” to my three feline “children” – Codjette, Tootsie and Leo.
