I first met Marianne Kim in December 2000 when she came to Kansas City for a consultation and piano lesson with me. I was impressed with her talent at the keyboard and her passion to learn. Since that time we’ve stayed in contact and I’ve watched her grow into an amazing composer, arranger, accompanist and studio musician. As a pianist, she plays all styles, and what she doesn’t know, she learns. There is a rich well of creativity within Marianne. She is a bright new talent on the Christian music scene and I expect her to make a great contribution to church music.
