Pianist, composer and teacher Bill Gordon started playing professionally at fourteen as drummer and leader of his rhythm & blues showband in Baltimore.  He later studied piano and composition at the Wiesbaden Conservatory in Germany, graduated Berklee College of Music, and since has composed, performed and produced mainstream jazz, evocative solo piano ballads, quirky pop songs, a quasi-avant-garde funk fable, written for film and TV, and enjoyed decades of teaching. 
Bill has recorded extensively, appeared as soloist, accompanist, music director, sideman and band leader throughout the United States and Europe, and taught music privately and at colleges in Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Vienna and now back in Baltimore. He currently writes and performs with jazz, R&B and indie pop singer/songwriters, does annual European tours, and composes an occasional TV or film track.  Bill taught at SAE Institute Miami for nine years, wrote their music and music business courses, and continues to lecture at campuses in the US and Europe.  He has recently published his DIY textbook It’s Music, Not Theory, Damn It! and released the online music course Music, No Theory. 
According to The Durham Herald-Sun, Bill Gordon is “... a composer with a wide pen, a fun-loving accompanist, an energetic rhythm section player, an impassioned performer, and a gifted, giving teacher.”
