Dennis Chan

Dennis Chan's love affair with music began at the tender age of six when he began taking piano lessons. Before long he was appointed pianist of his church in Hong Kong, where he continued until the age of 18.

He began learning the pipe organ in 2003 under the instruction of Ronald Ebrecht, while pursuing a Physics degree at Wesleyan University. As a student of Ronald's, he performed concerts in Connecticut, Colorado, and Guadalajara, Mexico.

After a few years of venturing into jazz vibraphone, Dennis moved to Boston in 2012, where he began studying organ music again under Christian. Under Christian's guidance he has performed concerts in venues including Old West Church, Trinity Church, and Harvard University. In addition, from 2013-2016, he also held a position as organist at the Armenian Memorial Church in Watertown, MA.

Not content to just *play* the organ, Dennis also recently built his own - an electronic organ using an Arduino board, scavenged parts, and his software engineering skills. Always looking to help others pursue the craft, he would be happy to help interested individuals build their own affordable practice organs.

In his spare time, Dennis plays and designs board games, and spends time with his partner and two cats.
