He obtained Bachelor of Music magna cum laude in Organ Performance at San Francisco State University, and a Master of Music in Organ Performance at the University of Oregon, Eugene. Supported by the Ruth Lorraine Close Award from the University of Oregon, he studied organ improvisation with Jean Langlais in Paris, France, who called Tikker “one of the most gifted temperaments I have ever encountered.” He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts in Organ Performance at the University of Michigan under Marilyn Mason. For over forty years, Tikker has served both as a church organist and music director. He has performed with community music groups as a singer and organist with the Eugene Chamber Singers and as harpsichordist with the University Sinfonietta and Oregon Baroque Ensemble. In 1999–2000, he served on the L’Organo program committee for the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. He performed Aaron Copland’s Organ Symphony with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra in 2000, and as harpsichord soloist with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra in 2002. An active composer and solo keyboardist, Tikker has authored articles for The American Organist, Journal of the American Musical Instrument Society, The Diapason, l’Orgue and other periodicals. His essays appear in scholarly books about composers Liszt and Tournemire, and he has presented academic papers in London and Miami. His solo organ recordings appear on the Arkay, OHS and Raven labels, and his compositions have been recorded for Centaur, JAV Records, Pro Organo, and Raven.
