Carl Harris

Carl Harris is a native of Newport News, Virginia who discovered his love for music at an early age. He began playing the piano when he was eight and quickly added the snare drums and the saxophone to the impressive list of instruments that he would later come to master.

Always driven by a seriousness of purpose and an innate ambition toward success, Carl began his pursuit of a life of musical performance early on by playing with several elementary school bands. By the time he reached middle school, Carl had formed his own group, the Blazers. Though his tenure as a young band leader was short lived, Carl continued to affiliate with other school groups, playing before enthusiastic high school audiences and boldly declaring himself a musical talent worthy of recognition.

After high school, Carl attended Virginia State University where he formed another band, PBWO (short for Point Blank and Wide Open). Despite the band's popularity at campus events and throughout the community, Carl would not yield to the lure of the limelight. His objective was clear - he was in college to receive a formal music education. And like every other goal in his life, Carl achieved this one in an impressive manner, earning a Bachelor of Science in Instrumental Performance and a Masters of Science in Music Education.
