Ian Brick

Ian first started studying the guitar formally at the age of fourteen and within two years was asked to join the teaching staff at a local music school in New Jersey. His passion for the instrument led him to wanting to pursue music as a profession and upon completing high school he enrolled at the University of the Arts. During this time Ian studies with some of the tri-state areas most sought after instructors: Shawn Christie, Dave Manley and Tom Giacabetti. In May of 2010 he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in jazz performance. Ian has performed at numerous venues in the Philadelphia area including the Prince Theater, World café Live, Chris’s Jazz Café, the Merriam Theater, and the Academy of Music. Ian currently lives in Philadelphia and continues to nurture the original music community.
