Aki Amai Aki Amai, Organist

Aki was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, where she began studying music at the early age of four taught by her mother, a piano teacher. She attended Santa Barbara City College and met her husband there in a World Music class. After earning her A. A. degree, she transferred to San Francisco Conservatory of Music for a B.M degree. Since graduating, Aki has deeply rooted herself within the Bay Area as a piano teacher, performer, accompanist, and organist. Aside from working for local schools and churches, she also occasionally performs as a swing accordionist in a jazz band with her husband.

In 2013, Aki welcomed her first baby daughter Olina (which means "joyous" in Hawaiian). Like her name, Olina is bringing so much joy to her life. And since Aki started working at BUMC, she is studying organ with Angela Cross Kraft, to refine and develop her musicianship skills further and continue to grow.
