Brad Carman Music     


B.M. Music Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Brad Carman enjoys an unusually diverse musical career. He began his professional career at age 14 playing with a blues, jazz, and R&B band out of Green Bay, WI called the Juggling Penguins. Since those early days, he has worked with wind ensembles, orchestras, jazz combos, big bands, and with numerous chamber ensembles, including the University of Wisconsin System Woodwind Ensemble, and Quattro Formaggi Saxophone Quartet which he founded in 2005.  He was a charter member of the award-winning 9-piece Madison R&B and funk band, The Big Payback, played principal woodwinds with the Janesville Armory Dinner Theater for several seasons, and has worked as a performer and arranger for Carnival Cruise Lines, sailing out of New Orleans, Miami, Mexico, and the Caribbean. 

Earning his degree in Music Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and chosen for the first ever Gerald B. Olson Award for Excellence in Music Education, he has held positions at Beloit College, Madison West High School, Ward-Brodt Music Education Department, Stoughton High School, Madison Music Foundry, and is a regular instructor for the University of Wisconsin Summer Music Clinic and UW High School Honors Jazz Ensembles. Brad is frequently called upon as a master class instructor, ensemble coach, and clinician for middle schools, high schools, universities, and community ensembles, and has maintained one of the most active private studios in Madison, WI for over 17 years.

Brad Carman is new to Central Florida and is looking forward to connecting to its music and music education community.
