Meet Glenn Anthony

GA Council for the Arts Teaching Artist

Several years of work in audio and video production (my undergraduate degree) led to my decision to pursue music as a career. Since performing as the Green Drum Master in the 1996 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in Atlanta, I have spent over 8000 hours on stages and in classrooms actively engaged in music performance and education.

As I collected instruments and learned music from around the world, I found myself performing at a wide range of venues. I recorded and released a (sold out) relaxing world music CD in 2001. I have played (and still play) piano, drums, and bass in rock, jazz, folk, blues, etc. ensembles as well as various world instruments in both solo and in traditional music ensembles including West and South African, Greek and Turkish traditional, Indonesian Gamelan (Emory University Gamelan), my “One Man World Music Looping Band”, and many more.

Decades of passionate musical experience has helped me become a well-rounded, versatile performer. As an avid listener to World Music, I often felt compelled to obtain and play unique sounding instruments I heard in the music. I never stop acquiring instruments, learning, practicing, and refining. I’m happiest when playing music or helping others enjoy playing and understanding music. I believe that learning music and playing with others is a focused activity that leads to relaxation, fellowship, personal betterment, and neuroplasticity.
