Jerome Fung

Jerome Fung began studying the organ with Christian Lane while completing a PhD in experimental soft condensed matter physics at Harvard University. Under Chris’s guidance, Jerome earned the Service Playing Certificate of the American Guild of Organists in 2014. Currently, Jerome was a Lecturer in Physics at Wellesley College and is currently Assistant Professor at Ithaca College. He occasionally acts as a substitute organist at churches in the area.

It has been a pleasure and privilege to study organ with Chris Lane. I was a complete beginner, and Chris patiently taught me a broad range of skills including manual and pedal technique, registration, and service playing. But Chris’s teaching has encompassed so much more. I have benefited from his deeply perceptive musicality in every piece I’ve studied with him, not only in a general sense but also in learning to make any given organ sound its best. Above all, Chris has always encouraged me to do things I initially didn’t think I could do.
