Emerson began pipe organ lessons with Christian Lane in May of 2016, and is excited to learn about the art, history, and architecture of "the king of instruments." He grew up in the Hudson River Valley region of New York, where he studied violin under Betty-Jean Hagen and piano under Sylvia Buccelli. He has a Master of Science Education from Syracuse University, and graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Biological Sciences in 2010.

During college, he was a member of the university orchestras at Boston University and Cornell University. In his free time, Emerson enjoys practicing pipe organ and piano, playing strategy board games and video games, eating, and taking walks outside.
