From: $35.00

Learn music with an award-winning pro bassist (The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers, Darryl Washington, Greg Millar, Rey Scott, Bobby Jones, Doug Yeomans, Mary Ramsey, Ray Hangen, Joe Rozler, The Tim Clarke Soul-tet), guitarist, and music educator (SUNY Fredonia).

Learn the instrument—AND the music.

Ed Croft is one of WNY’s hardest working freelance musicians. Equally at home in styles ranging from bebop jazz to honky tonk country, Croft always strives to serve the song through his playing. It is this quality that he instills in students—teaching them to be musicians, and not merely people who play instruments. Students will learn the skills to make them a gig-ready team player!
