About Gerard Spicer
Recently, Gerard has performed with The Gainesville Orchestra, Imperial Symphony Orchestra, and in musicals produced by the Ocala Civic Theater and Santa Fe College. Additionally, he presents regular performances at the Southeastern Saxophone Summit, and at North American Saxophone Alliance conferences.
Gerard believes in developing musicality and fostering learning skills that will last a lifetime. Learning saxophone serves as an excellent platform for building both these abilities, and for having fun while doing so. By combining various teaching methods, Gerard creates an environment where students can build confidence, achieve their goals, and discover their ability to self-learn through practicing.
Gerard holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Florida, where he studied with Dr. Jonathan Helton. He also holds an Artist Diploma, and Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Western Ontario. He maintains a private studio in Gainesville, Florida, with students from across Central Florida.
