Chip Gulbro

Music has been my passion since childhood, when I started picking out tunes I heard on tv and radio with the ukulele and later guitar. I played trumpet in high school and college while learning guitar on my own, then began violin lessons. After playing in a variety of folk groups and 6 years with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, 2 years with the Huntsville Chamber Orchestra, I switched to jazz. It has been a long journey to be able to improvise a standard jazz tune, but it is well worth the trip. I recommend it to everyone! My teaching career has taken me around the globe, including jobs in Japan and Germany with the Department of Defense.
