Gary B.

Gary began his life’s journey in music at twelve years old when he was installed as the accompanist for his church’s senior choir and even though he did not pursue music as a career, choosing work in public service in education and human resources, music has been a constant presence as an avocation, calling, passion used to enable inner peace, and now, livelihood. Gary brings years of experience playing in cover bands, directing small ensembles for stage productions, supporting vocalist, as well as providing music in restaurants, lounges, and clubs throughout central Pennsylvania. Throughout his life, he has served as lead keyboardist in various worship ensembles for congregations utilizing selections from the song books of both contemporary Christian and black gospel genres. A cherished designation for Gary in recent years was as an Artist in Residence for the Milton Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania providing music for patients, staff, and various events at the hospital. Before leaving Pennsylvania, he had been serving as worship pastor for a medium sized congregation coordinating nearly fifty instrumentalists and singers charged with providing worship for three services each weekend. Gary now combines his love for the piano, his gift for working with people of all ages, and his passion for all types of music, with a deep commitment to equip a new generation of players for the future demands for the music marketplace. Gary is looking to equip keyboardists for bands not yet formed, prepare musicians for congregations not yet planted, or prepare someone for the tasteful accompaniment for an engagement in the future by a vocalist.
