John-Micah Braswell  is a junior at Baylor University studying piano performance with Professor Jane Abbot-Kirk.  He also studies organ "on the side" with Dr. Isabelle Demers and plans to pursue additional collaborative and conducting studies post baccalaureate.  Previous piano instructors include Professor Vergie Amendola, Dr. Caleb Harris, Dr. Mira Mintcheva, Dr. David McArthur, and Nicolette Bischoff.  He began playing piano at age 4.

John-Micah has been a guest soloist with five symphonies including the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.  He has served as accompanist, arranger, and composer for four choirs at Baylor University and is currently performing with their Concert Choir and Bella Voce.  He is a participant in a competitive piano trio and piano duo, and he is an ongoing accompanist, soloist, and commissioned arranger for Centennial Children's Chorus.

John-Micah also enjoys actively contributing to communities--both locally and abroad--by regularly producing and directing benefit concerts.  Some of the organizations that have benefitted from the generous audience donations at these concerts have been:
  • A clean water project in the Shyogwe region of Rwanda
  • Respite Care Inc. (support for persons with disabilities)
  • Alpha Center (crisis pregnancy services) 
  • Matthews House (homelessness prevention project)
Even during high school, he volunteered his talents regularly at local retirement homes and the Poudre River Public Library District. 

John-Micah's journey as an artist was as busy in high-school as it is in college.  He was a graduate assistant for Centennial Children’s Chorus and the accompanist for many local musical productions.  He was also a guest performer with The Denver Philharmonic Orchestra, the Loveland Orchestra, the Greeley Chamber Orchestra, and the Pikes Peak Philharmonic.  Competitive awards during these years included:
  • 1st place at Baylor University Summer Piano Institute, Steinway Piano Competition, and state MTNA
  • 2nd place at CSMTA
  • 3rd place at Kawai and Yamaha competitions
  • Finalist in the Colorado Piano Festival and the Arthur Frasier International Piano Competition. 

Outside of music, John-Micah enjoys hiking and biking.  He is also a nationally ranked speech and debate competitor.
