Hailing from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greg Bruce is a Doctor of Musical Arts currently teaching at the College of the North Atlantic. He has spent over 20 years in the music industry as a side-musician, soloist, composer/arranger, and band leader. During this time Greg has drawn on his training in classical and jazz to record, tour, and perform in every setting imaginable: from conferences in the US, to street parties in Canada, to palaces in Russia.
For his doctoral studies, Greg developed a “feedback saxophone” system whereby the saxophone is augmented by analogue media to manipulate acoustic feedback tones. He has since expanded this work to include various cassette tape media in a “post-digital” solo performance project. As an educator, Greg has taught privately for most of his career, led workshops and masterclasses at the University of Toronto, and worked as a per-course instructor at Memorial University.
