Victor Goines

Victor Goines has played the clarinet since the age of eight and continued his studies with Carl Blouin, Sr., who introduced him to the saxophone at St. Augustine High School. In 1980, he entered Loyola University in New Orleans where he studied clarinet and saxophone, receiving a Bachelor of Music Education Degree in 1984.

As Mr. Goines' interest in jazz increased, he contacted Ellis Marsalis in 1983 to take private lessons. Eight months later, Mr. Marsalis selected Mr. Goines to play saxophone as a member of his quartet. Mr. Goines left New Orleans in 1987 to pursue his graduate studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, receiving his Master of Music Degree in 1990.
