         Growing up in the Los Angeles area Geoffrey Wilson started playing guitar at age 11 and was working professionally as a musician by age thirteen in local rock and acoustic acts. As a teenager he played in local college big bands, studied classical guitar at California Institute of the Arts and was invited to study at UC Santa Barbara to develop his other musical love, composing.

As a young adult Geoffrey studied piano, classical and studio guitar and composition at California State University Northridge where he received his Bachelor of Music Degree in composition. He also studied Javanese and Balinese Gamelan music at UCLA and Cal Arts. During this time he worked extensively as a session musician, musical director, composer, and producer.

            Finally moving to the Seattle area Geoffrey now spends his time composing background production music, performing live and in the studio, and teaching guitar, piano and composition.
