Mr. Tarpeh is a community development specialist, accomplished pianist, and educator. He works with ANAM’s board of directors in coordinating the planning, administration, and daily management. He believes the arts, specifically music, is key toward the development of vibrant and heartier communities.

He is formerly Minister of Music of Providence Baptist Church, and Pianist and Assistant Choir Director of First United Methodist Church, both in Monrovia. He received a Master of Science degree in Community and Leadership Development, and a Graduate Certificate in Education with emphasis in College Teaching and Learning, from the University of Kentucky, in August 2017.

I want to see children thrive emotionally, physically and spiritually. I believe God can use ANAM to minister to young people and bring Liberians together through His gift of Music!
