BIOGRAPHY OF GARY WASHBURN

Gary Washburn grew up and attended public school in Skiatook, Oklahoma. He was very active in music, taking piano lessons and playing in the school band. However, his original career goal was to be in Veterinary Medicine.

But, along the way his brother, Kent (also a graduate of Skiatook HS, class of 1960), got involved in a dance band called The Shadow Lake Eight. Gary was very enthusiastic about what his brother was doing, and practiced and learned the piano parts for that performing group.

Gary's award-winning concept of High School Band is unique only unto itself. It is completely geared toward teaching students how to become popular music performers, many of them moving on from high school into the entertainment industry. To quote Gary, ”I don’t do Marching Bands… what good is that going to be for musically inclined students in this day and age. I teach them how to compete in the real music market, “Rock & Roll”.
