On Thursday, July 28 beginning at 9:00 AM, Andy’s Music is sponsoring an Alfred Piano Teacher Workshop featuring composer and arranger Tom Gerou.
Mr. Gerou composes in a variety of genres including masterworks, original supplemental music, pop and methods. The combination of his production and composition experience allows Tom to showcase the diversity of materials available from his publisher, Alfred Music. He will discuss new materials and techniques to help revitalize your piano studio.
After studying music in his native North Dakota, Tom graduated with honors from the University of Southern California, where he received a music degree in composition. He continued his education as a Charles Ditson Scholar at Yale University, receiving his masters of music degree in composition.
He is one of the primary arrangers in 27 books for Alfred’s Basic Piano Library’s Top Hits, Greatest Hits and Patriotic Solos series. As a composer, Tom is perhaps best known to piano teachers for his solos Northern Lights and Whiskers and Fins, which were chosen for the 2001-2003 National Federation of Music Club’s Junior Festival Bulletin.
