Edward Owen Henderson - Bio

Music has always been a part of Edward’s life. He grew up listening to his father’s record collection and was exposed to a diverse selection of music. Irish and American folk music, Rock n Roll, the U.S. Military Band, and Country Western were all a part of his daily listening. He began his musical training by playing trumpet in the Junior high school band and bought his first guitar as a teenager. He played in a number of different garage bands while in High School. It was at this time that he connected with the power of music and found it would be his path in life.

Edward participated in his first drum circle in 1994 during the year he spent as a migrant farm worker. It was one evening after working in the fields that some fellow tree planters brought out some hand drums and everybody began playing. Edward was captivated by this experience and learned that everyone working together in creating a unified rhythm produced a unique positive energy and a strong sense of unity.

Edward has studied piano, voice, drums, violin, flute, trumpet and all styles of guitar throughout his life. He studied music composition at Houston Community College and in 2003 moved to the DFW area to study music composition at the University of North Texas. Edward participated in a number of performance art ensembles, men’s chorus, and the African Percussion Ensemble. In 2007, he traveled to the Volta Region of Ghana to study the music and culture of the Ewe.
Edward has taught private music lessons for 15 years and worked with every population from special needs children to seniors. He worked as a music teacher for a pre-k and kindergarten school and as an elementary and junior high school band director. Edward’s passion for life and his love for music and culture bring a unique and diverse dynamic to every rhythmic-based event. He uses a simple improvisational music making process that transcends language and cultural boundaries allowing a group to reach their highest music potential.
