Akemi is an English major from Clinton, Connecticut. She started playing piano at age five and clarinet at age nine. She has studied piano with Naomi Niskala and Erika Schroth at the Neighborhood Music School, Ed Lawrence at Williams, and Matthijs Verschoor while studying abroad at the Amsterdam School of Music. In addition to playing piano, Akemi has played clarinet with Symphonic Winds, Student Symphony, and Berkshire Symphony at Williams. When she isn’t in rehearsal, Akemi enjoys reading long Victorian novels, drinking coffee, and making fun of her friends. She would like to thank her family for always being supportive, her friends for keeping her sane, and all the musicians and teachers at Williams for providing an incredible community to work with over the past four years.
