Horace Bray is an NYC based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. Coming from a background in jazz and improvised music, Horace has become a staple in the New York music scene, playing regularly with artists like John Splithoff, Michael Blume, and Sirintip. Over the past year, however, he began to flourish as a songwriter, preparing to step into the limelight- inspired by musicians including Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, and The Milk Carton Kids.
Horace takes you through his daily regimen that’s designed to get the fingers and mind moving. The practice reinforces a deep knowledge of the fretboard, and progresses in difficulty. The second part explores modern tonality. If you’ve ever heard contemporary players stretching the sound of a simple chord progression and thought, “how do they do that?” — this is the “that.”
Private lessons with Horace can cover technique, songwriting, rhythm development, musicianship, and more.
