Martin “Tim” Ferguson is a New Upper School Music Teacher

Tim has been a professional jazz bassist, composer, and educator for over thirty-five years. He has performed extensively in the United States and in Europe and has made numerous recordings, both with his own groups and with others. He may be familiar to members of the Trinity community due to his frequent presence in the pit for Trinity musicals and cabarets for many years. He has taught music to a variety of ages and levels at a number of educational institutions and as a private instructor. He is the author of two books on how to play the electric and double bass and has worked as a bow repair technician and on-site luthier at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Tim speaks fluent Italian and his wife, Gloria, is a highly respected translator and interpreter in English and Italian. His step-daughter, Sera, is a theoretical physicist and part of an international physics research team headed by Stephen Hawking. Tim is looking forward to being part of the faculty and working with the students at Trinity.
