Tedde Gibson

Tedde Gibson is probably one of the most eclectic musicians of this modern age. His chosen instrument is the organ: whether it is classical pipe organ, theatre organ, or Hammond, he is comfortable playing all three. Tedde also enjoys playing gospel, jazz and classical piano. In mid 2011 he released two recordings which introduce the listener to a few of his favorite styles: "At Last" and "Let There Be Praise Volume I", both on the 4-manual 38-rank Hardman Studio theatre organ located in Great Falls, VA. Both recordings incorporate the wonderful sounds of this instrument in a unique mix of music from gospel to hymns to jazz.
A native of Tacoma, WA, he began playing piano at age four and pipe organ at age 16. He has studied piano with Gail Brooks, Dorothy Bade and Dr. Stephen Moore. Tedde has also studied classical organ with the late Dr. Edward Hansen and Dr. Carol Terry, classical organ improvisation with Dr. J. Melvin Butler and David Dahl, and theatre organ stylings with Jonas Nordwall. He has been a church organist/ pianist at First Assembly of God/Life Center Church and Pizza & Pipes in Tacoma; and First AME Church in Seattle. He moved to the metropolitan DC area in late 2003 and became organist/musician in residence at First Baptist Church if Highland Park in Landover, MD; Holy Comforter/St. Cyprian Roman Catholic Church and Capitol Hill Seventh-Day Adventist Church, both in DC. He has also studied at the University of Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA and the University of Washington in Seattle. He currently studies with Dr. Mickey Thomas Terry of DC.
Tedde always incorporates these many influences in his playing. It is harmonically creative and exciting- he endeavors to dare his audience to delve into his way of non-traditional playing and use of the theatre pipe organ as his medium, coxing new listeners to this amazing instrument!
