Taylor Watson has been playing and teaching diverse styles of music for many years.

After studying jazz guitar and political science at Oberlin College (with a semester studying Spanish music in Granada, Spain), he relocated to Park Slope, Brooklyn to continue playing and studying creative music. After several musical jams in Havana and Santiago, Cuba, Taylor founded the vibrant band Son de Brooklyn in 2008. The group has recorded two albums in New York and Cuba and features collaborations with Cuban music legends Peruchin, Elpidio Chappotin, Chucho Valdes’ Afro-Cuban Jazz Messengers, and Havana flute luminary Alberto Corrales. Other current musical projects include The Watson Family Band, which blends folk, bluegrass, and jazz elements, and Suena Ashé, a sparkling duo featuring forgotten vocal and piano music of early 20th century Cuba. www.taylormusica.org
