Get to know Gabriel Preston

I am a woodwind multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator born and raised in Philadelphia. Alto saxophone was my first woodwind instrument in 4th grade, followed by the clarinet in 6th grade, followed by the flute in high school. Throughout college, I would eventually go on to pick up the other members of those families (tenor/baritone/soprano saxes, piccolo, bass clarinet) as well as oboe and bassoon. A recent graduate of Temple University, I'm grateful to have been mentored by the likes of Mark Allen, Dick Oatts, Tim Warfield, Eric Alexander, Ben Schachter, and Terell Stafford among many other incredible jazz faculty. Also grateful to have been mentored by some classical faculty such as Mimi Stillman and Matthew Levy. I currently lead two projects of my own: The Gabe Preston Quartet, which is my chord-less jazz quartet where I usually play bari sax/flute and perform my original compositions and arrangements, and GPS (Gabe Preston Sounds/Sessions), an electric fusion group where I usually play soprano sax/flute/clarinet and perform more of my originals and arrangements as well as my bandmates' originals. GPS currently has two singles, "I-76" and "Yumeni," available on all streaming platforms. which were done entirely through remote recording during the pandemic.
