Stephen Galvin

Bio

Stephen Galvin plays, guitar, bass, drums and vocals.

He is is an experienced, registered and qualified teacher of Music.

"I started playing jazz in my later teen years, and when I was 24 started working with the NZ Guitar Academy in Auckland, for which I wrote a course in guitar and bass playing. That led to me forming my own studio when I was 27, and that’s been my full-time occupation since then. So gig life has been a pleasant sideline to teaching and I’ve played in orchestras, church groups, music theatre, a lot of jazz gigs, private and café gigs, cover bands – ...”

Making use of his studio he has previously released three albums, each inevitably tied to his teaching role to a greater or lesser extent, and largely solo showcases of his own instrumental diversity. The last was inspired by Weather Report, “…a very spacey kind of instrumental and synth-oriented jazz rock sound,” as he describes it. (Richard Thorne - NZ musician)

Stephen leads two bands; The Residentz, and the Stevie G Band. He performs with the Santiago Band Auckland, West City Jazz Orchestra and others. He has performed with the Prohibition Big Band, Auckland Concert Orchestra, in musical theatre, church bands, in countless jazz gigs and he manages ABC Studios in Auckland's Parnell for teaching, recording, rehearsals and performance. He also teaches singing, guitar, bass and drums in three Auckland secondary schools. His most recent album of New Zealand Jazz Modal Behavior is listed at abcstudioz.com

Stephen's approach to teaching is simple:

"To share the joy of making music with as many people as possible as often as possible."

Stephen Galvin holds a Performer's Diploma from Trinity College London, Bachelor of Music and Arts degrees, a Master of Music degree with First Class Honours, and a Diploma in Teaching from the University of Auckland.
