Garrett has always had a love of music, and began taking piano lessons at age 10. This later inspired him to get his Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance from the University of Dayton, and as of December 2018 he will also have his Master's in Piano Performance from Wright State University. During that time, Garrett was the Bass section leader at his church in Dayton, and has also been singing with contemporary a capella ensemble Phonic Uproar since 2012, recently taking on musical direction of that group. Garrett has also performed as keyboardist in an eclectic jazz and rock band, as well as an assortment of choirs and jazz ensembles through his college years. After being awarded a scholarship, Garrett began taking organ lessons in 2017, and is excited to bring his piano, organ and choral skills to St. Peter & St. Paul UCC. Garrett is a math interventionist at Dayton Leadership Academy, and also teaches voice and piano lessons. Garrett and his wife Lauren recently moved to their first house in Trenton, Ohio with their cat. They can frequently be found playing board games, spending time with loved ones, drinking coffee, or baking, and are excited to be welcomed into the SPSP community.
