Arlington Akers

A native of Port Huron, Michigan, 25 year old Arlington Akers is a quintessential master of the piano and is dexterously cunning. The home of his heart resides with gospel music but his diversity accentuates his musical fluidity and adeptness to play everything from classical to country to jazz.

For the first time at age seven, Arlington sat down at a piano and played one night with his father’s band. Guided by his father’s instruction on that night, this seven year old child would develop into a tasteful musician abounding with the purest measure of élan and virtuosity; an extraordinary recipe for greatness.

Arlington pursued his scholastic studies at Benedict College and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in music. His theoretical knowledge is the foundation by which he is fluent in artful composition and arranging. In recent years, Arlington has successfully progressed into the ambit of production.

During the course of his career as a musician, Arlington has been privileged to accompany several national and international artists such as multiple Stellar Award winning, Jonathan Nelson, Stellar Award winning saxophonist, Angela Christie, Daniel Johnson of Israel Houghton and Newbreed, Chad Chambers and gospel recording artist and songwriter, John Lakin. Currently, he teaches group piano at Carolina School for Inquiry. Where his goal is to teach each child piano in an atmosphere of creativity and kindness. Giving kids a positive outlet and a voice of expression.
