Drum, Guitar, Piano, Music Performance, Music Recording, Percussion
Since arriving in Rochester, NY in 2007, Chris T. has become one of the areas most in-demand drummers. A willingness to integrate a myriad of different styles with dedicated authenticity has provided Chris with long-standing musical relationships with groups as diverse as The Po’ Boys Brass Band (funk/rock), the Crescent City Connection (traditional swing dance), Madeline Forster (American songbook), and Cash Back (country). Always an active collaborator, Chris can be heard investigating creative new territory with bassist and singer and bassist Katie Ernst, the Dave Rivello Ensemble, the New Energy Jazz Orchestra, and The Mighty High and Dry.
Since the group’s formation in 2009, Chris’ group Quintopus has been an outlet for original creative music and instrumental covers of artists including Bjork, Cibo Matto, and Radiohead. Signing to ears&eyes Records in 2010, Quintopus’ debut album “…incorporates so many influences into a brew that is steeped in traditions but also has a shot of rock-n-roll sensibility.”
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music (MM ’09) and Whitworth University (BA ‘05) Chris has been driven to provide practical music education to his community as an individual and group instructor. With recent group workshop tours in Arizona, Washington, Pennsylvania, and New York, Chris intends to build upon those experiences and expand access of to the arts in other communities, nation-wide. Also an active community organizer, Chris has worked with the Rochester Freelance Musician Forum, Rochester Musicians Local 66, and the Institute for Creative Music (a non-profit co-run with trombonist Nick Finzer).
Piano, Music Theory, Organ
John is an Organist, Harpsichordist, and Pianist completing a Master's degree at the Eastman School of Music in the organ studio of William Porter. He graduated from Eastman with a Bachelor of Music in Organ and Historical Keyboards in 2011 as a student of David Higgs. At Eastman, he has also studied the pedal clavichord and piano technique with Ulrika Davidsson.
As an instructor, John firmly believes that private, one on one music instruction should be tailored to each individual student. His pedagogical approach is different for each student. Everyone learns differently. There is just not one way to learn to play an instrument. At the first lesson there will be a discussion on the students goals and interests and different methods of teaching will be discussed with the student (and parents) to decide what the best step forward will be.
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting
I have been a lifelong music student, learning piano from a young age and moving on to french horn, voice, guitar, mandolin, and percussion. As a piano teacher with five years of teaching experience for beginner to intermediate students I chose to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Music followed by a Masters degree in Music Therapy. I enjoy helping people of all ages and levels of skill follow their dream to learn a musical instrument. In my free time I learn to sing and play my favorite songs on guitar and improvise and write music with my friends.
