Gerald Braden



Gerald Wilhelm Braden, originally from Austria, moved to the United States as a teenager. He began his music studies as a boy in Vienna, on the bass and cello. He continued his studies with members of the Cleveland Orchestra in the US, and also started playing electric bass, guitar, keyboards, and saxophone with American bands. Gerald received his first music degree as a guitarist in his 20's. He earned his living as a touring and studio session guitarist and keyboardist with many international artists, and also as a composer for many music artists, as well as composing for radio and TV. He returned to college in his 40's, and earned his Master's degree as a pianist, and also became a professor of Music Theory and Orchestration.
