Henriksen began piano lessons at the age of seven, and continued through high school. At age thirteen he became the organist at his hometown church. Henriksen attended Luther College in Decorah and received further musical instruction. In the years following, he has played for a wide variety of events, including solo piano and organ concerts, church services, weddings, funerals, receptions, and other social activities. His repertoire includes classical, ragtime, blues and jazz, standards, pop and rock, country, Latin, gospel, and sacred. Glenn's lifetime experience in many musical genres has enabled him to develop a unique musical style, resulting in one-of-a-kind improvised arrangements.
