Geoff Stradling

Composer and pianist Geoff Stradling started piano lessons at age six - his mother being his first teacher. By 13 had run through the piano instructors in his hometown - Bellingham Washington, and began a biweekly trip to Seattle to study at The Cornish School, where coincidentally his maternal grandmother had taught years before.

Passionate about music Geoff founded a big band as a freshman in high school and wrote for it for 4 years. By the time he was a sophomore in college he had won a national composition contest sponsored by the National (now International) Association of Jazz Educators.
