Joshua Rorrer

Piano, clarinet, saxophone teacher since 2022

Joshua's musical journey began by taking piano lessons as a kid after being inspired by seeing his older brother in the marching band.  In middle school the instrument that caught his eye was the clarinet, which quickly changed to the saxophone.  Upon entering high school, the band director Sean McClure showed him jazz which quickly became an obsession. 

This love for jazz helped Joshua push to want to further his studies upon graduating, which was done at ECU.  At that time, he studied with many great musicians and teachers such as Carroll Dashiell (played with Ray Charles, Bobby Watson, Art Blakey), Scott Sawyer (John Scofield) and Dr. Jeff Bair (Branford Marsalis, NC symphony, Marcus Roberts).  Here, Joshua had the pleasure of performing with many great players such as Wycliffe Gordon, Delfeayo Marsalis, and Maurice Hines.  Currently, he is attending NCCU for a Masters of music in Jazz Composition.
