Welcome to Larry Gray – Musician and Teacher

Since 2007, I”ve joined the ranks of academia as a member of the University of Illinois’ Jazz Department, where I have a range of teaching activities. These include a small jazz group, a jazz aural skills course for all jazz majors, an improvisation class for non-jazz majors in improvisation and many private students, on bass and guitar, along with other majors. This whole experience, begun in 2007, has been quite rewarding, and eye-opening, coming after thirty plus years teaching in Chicago.

This blog is dedicated to my students, current as well as past and, hopefully, future. If you have any musical questions you’d like to see addressed here, please feel free to email me at “larry@larrygraymusic.com” “lwgray@illininois.edu
