Name: Geoff B.
Music Instrument(s) Taught: Drumset, Voice
I grew up in Rochester, NY where I studied music performance, applied music, and theater. I have performed in Cats, Pajama Game, Much Ado About Nothing, Rent, A Chorus Line, Wicked, Hairspray, and Return To The Forbidden Planet. I have also toured Italy to perform with RH Singers. I’ve worked, toured, recorded with or been closely associated with Vaughn Jensen Band, Fishbowl, Danger Rangers, Wabi Sabi, Pamela Thomas-Martin, Denny Way Collective, Rising Buffalo Tribe, Sol Seed, and many others.
I offer an active learning curriculum where student and instructor play while learning. This helps the student gain confidence as an interactive performer while giving the instructor insight as to how to draw out the student’s strengths. Learning timeless material is a fun way to build confidence and explore music. I also offer a, “Mirror,” technique that is essentially a call and response that can originate with myself or the student, and ends with us together.
I will bring my drum kit to your home and set up to play along with you. Voice lessons will focus on articulation, breathing techniques, dynamic control, strengthening and keeping your voice healthy.
I excel at Reggae/Dub, Funk, Blues RN’B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Rock, Jam, Jazz, Latin, Drum and Bass, House, and Lounge.
Geoff is accepting students of all ages.
