At Heriz Music: Burlingame, 94010
As a child, Mr. Bassford enjoyed music and was always singing. He began to study piano at age 8, but it wasn’t until he started learning clarinet through the public school music program, that music really became the primary focus of his life. During his teen years, he played in bands, sang in choirs, and acted in high school musicals. At San Francisco State University, he focused his music study on piano and took degrees in Piano Performance and Music Education. After college, Mr. Bassford worked for Bank of America while pursuing music through church work as an organist and choir director and through community theater both as an actor/singer and music director. Twelve years ago, Mr. Bassford changed careers and is now teaching instrumental and choral music in the Burlingame public schools. As well as accompanying for Ragazzi boys choir, he is an organist at First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame and Congregational Church of San Mateo. Mr. Bassford also plays clarinet and piano in the College of San Mateo Symphonic band.
