Christopher BromleyMusic Director
Christopher Bromley is a jack-of-all-trades who has lived and breathed music from birth. An adamant follower of the thought that instruments are merely avenues of expression for the one true universal language, he prides himself on learning and adapting styles from all manner of instruments, be it stringed, percussion or brass. He attended the Berklee College of Music, is a graduate of the School of Rock program and a former AllStar. He's had the honor of playing with many great acts/people, from Ga-in to Victor Wooten and Adrian Belew. He is a member of several bands, of which he thinks the most aptly named is Two Dudes and a Guitar and worst named is Youth in Asia. He is a fan of Mariah Carey, Jeff Buckley and fried Oreos. He enjoys long walks on the beach, but enjoys teaching within the musician's haven that is School of Rock even more so.
