Kirstin Erickson

Kirstin Erickson discovered her deep love of music at an early age. She began playing the piano by ear at 4 years old, listening to her older brother practice and imitating his songs. Through piano lessons with Marcia Lehe, she studied classical music and performed in recitals and competitions. As a high school senior, she achieved the High School Diploma from the National Guild of Piano Teachers and was awarded second place in the Berkley-Pendell Piano Competition.

Kirstin just graduated from the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in music with elective studies in Christian Education. While in college, she was blessed to receive honorable mention in the 2020 concerto competition, as well as the Stella Russell Scholarship in Music, which is awarded to an exceptionally talented and deserving student in music as decided by Conservatory faculty. She studied piano with Dr. Karin Edwards and Kyle Orth, harp with Faye Seeman, and participated in Women’s Chorale and Symphonic Band.

Outside classical piano, Kirstin is passionate about leading worship at her local church, Gospel Fellowship Church. This role has helped her develop both musically and personally. She loves the opportunity to collaborate, improvise, and turn a performance into an encounter with God.

One of the most formative aspects of Kirstin’s musical journey was the local retirement community where her high school piano recitals were held. The residents’ joy opened her eyes to the healing and transforming power of music, ultimately leading to her hope of pursuing a career in music therapy. Kirstin loves connecting with the emotion and meaning in each piece and communicating it to others. She believes that everyone can create, experience, and enjoy music, and wants to bring the wonderful gift of music to you!
