BIOGRAPHY

Performer
I am the founder and leader of The Mulligan Mosaics Big Band as well
as a member of Jeru, Marco Polo, and Under the Streetlamp. I’m
currently touring the United States as a member of the pit orchestra for
the Jersey Boys 2nd National Tour. I've released three recordings as a
leader and am on at least a dozen recordings by other Chicago artists.
My most recent release is Ted Hogarth and the Mulligan Mosaics Big
Band Live at the Jazz Showcase which features arrangements recorded
by Gerry Mulligan’s Concert Jazz Band as well as arrangements by
members of MMBB.
Other recordings as a leader are Misconception, which was released
under the Italian recording label Wide Sound, is a collection of original
compositions with my sextet THC. StepsTaken was inspired by a trip to
Cuba in 2000 where I studied at Centro Nacional de Escuelas de Arte
with Orlando Sanchez and other master Cuban musicians.
My passion is playing the baritone saxophone, clarinet, and bass
clarinet. My inspiration on these instruments is drawn primarily from
Harry Carney, Gerry Mulligan, Jimmy Hamilton, and Barney Bigard. The
range and sonority of the baritone and bass clarinet are very appealing
to my ear and I strive to achieve a full, rich, and dark tone.

Composer
I received a Master's Degree in Jazz Composition with Distinction from
DePaul University in 2005. My primary instructor was Tom Matta. I've
composed and arranged for small groups and big bands on both original
compositions, such as 'Children's Song,' and standards, such as 'When
Lights Are Low.’ I was commissioned to write a big band arrangement
featuring tenor saxophonist and educator Mark Colby. I also write big
band arrangements for middle school and high school groups. With
more than a dozen years of experience as an educator, I write
compositions and arrangements for younger musicians that are
challenging, musically interesting, and often draw from the classic
American songbook—characteristics that are often lacking in
commercially available arrangements. Contact me about commissions.

Educator
I’ve taught middle school and high school woodwind musicians, and jazz
theory and improvisation. I was also a private lesson instructor and
ensemble coach at Columbia College Chicago.
I enjoy helping young musicians discover the joy of music and all the
rewards that are the result of hard work and discipline. I'm proud to say
that many of my students have won local and state awards and have
gone on to successful college careers with scholarships. I also teach
master classes and clinics for middle school, high school, and college
students. As an adult with Attention Deficit Disorder, who has learned
how to manage it successfully to professionally thrive, I am eager to help
young
students who face similar challenges. I have witnessed the growth and
maturity among students who face similar challenges and I'm eager to
share what I've learned with others. This is an area of music education I
feel passionately about and you'll find future articles and information
posted here on the issue.
