Composer, pianist, and educator Becca May Grant loves to find the place where music and spirituality meet. Her favorite spot is at the church keyboard, leading worship via a mix of musical styles.
Becca’s compositions for vocal ensemble draw on gospel, jazz, and classical choral repertoire, with emphasis on collaboration. In 2016, Becca released Beauty for Ashes Live, an album of original gospel jazz compositions.
In 2019 and 2020, Becca directed the music for the Wisconsin Statewide Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration and Tribute, a production of Africasong Communications, including a mass choir arrangement of her original song, “Justice”, in 2019.
Becca currently guest leads worship at area churches, serves as music director of Sisters In Song Community Choir (Africasong), and plays piano with jazz ensembles including the Betsy Ezell Quintet. In her teaching studio, Becca specializes in training adults and children of all abilities to find their unique musical voice.
Becca lives on the south side of Madison with her spouse, three children, a dog, and her vegetable garden.
