Gwen Gerke

Gwen was the definition of a band geek in middle and high school. She graduated from a then 1A school in coastal Washington, having performed on every standard wind instrument during that time except for bass clarinet, bassoon, horn, and baritone. Using her experience she wrote a band piece for her senior project (still unnamed!), then went on to study Music Theory and Composition at Central Washington University. Meanwhile she continued studying oboe and English horn, learning piano, working with CWU’s theater program, and diving head first into the adventurous world of digital and electronic music. This is her second year with Ethos as a Rural Music Facilitator in Elkton, Oregon, the latest in volunteer teaching with various organizations. She brings with her musical and drama experience, gymnastics, Japanese, a love of video games and their soundtracks, cosplay and costume making, and waaaay too much internet culture. She loves to analyze music from whatever and wherever it’s from, and hopes to give her students and communities the motivation and terminology to express what they love about music.
