Chip Gulbro is our Orchestra Magnet Director. He recieved his Masters in Music Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and his BA in Music from UAH.
Music has been Chip's passion since childhood, when he started picking out tunes he heard on tv and radio with the ukulele and later guitar. He played trumpet in high school and college while learning guitar on his own, then began violin lessons. After playing in a variety of folk groups and 6 years with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, 2 years with the Huntsville Chamber Orchestra, Chip switched to jazz. It has been a long journey to be able to improvise a standard jazz tune, but it is well worth the trip. He recommends it to everyone!
Chip's teaching career has taken me around the globe, including jobs in Japan and Germany with the Dept. of Defense.
