Lisa Glade has had a fascination with the organ since childhood, but didn’t have the opportunity to study the instrument formally until she entered college. Private organ lessons “just for fun” led to a change of major and eventually Bachelor’s (1995) and Master’s (1998) degrees in organ performance from Brigham Young University, where she studied with Don Cook.
Lisa has spent many years as a ward and stake organist and has taught organ both privately and in workshop settings.
She recently moved to Mount Vernon, Washington.
