Saxophonist Tim Green is apart of the latest additions to the Jazz Studies faculty, and will teach private lessons, coach ensembles, and teach jazz department courses at Peabody beginning in the Fall 2018 semester.
Internationally acclaimed saxophonist, educator, composer, and arranger Tim Green, a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts, received his Bachelor of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and his master’s degree in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California’s Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. During his time at USC he came up under the guiding lights of legends like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Terence Blanchard. His diverse performance career includes playing with some of the most recognized names in jazz, gospel, R&B, hip-hop, and pop music, including Christian McBride, Eric Reed, Mulgrew Miller, Jon Faddis, Kurt Rosenwinkle, Queen Latifah, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, and Yolanda Adams. He has played in venues including Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Disney Hall, the White House, and the Village Vanguard. Green has worked as a faculty member, guest artist-in-residence, and clinician at programs including Morgan State University, Temple University, the Baltimore School for the Arts, Seiko Jazz Camp, Brevard Jazz Camp, UNC Asheville, Jazz Reach, the University of Tennessee Knoxville, and the Stanford Jazz Workshop.
Green will join Jones and a roster of renowned performers and esteemed teachers on the faculty at the Peabody Conservatory.
