Bruce Berquist – composition, songwriting, musicology, music technology, music business

At the age of 4, Bruce showed such an interest in his mother’s new piano that he started formal piano lessons at the age of 5. He has never lost interest in the piano, but has since added a number of other instruments to his repertoire. His favorites are keyboards of all types and bass guitar, along with indigenous tribal instruments and percussion.

In his early teens, he got his start as a composer and recording engineer. His great-grandfather was a successful lyricist, and Bruce idolized and loved him. That relationship showed Bruce the connection between poetry and music, and he published his first song in 1974, at the age of 17.

He has composed commercial jingles and music for professional theater, and done session and sound engineering gigs in the U.S. and abroad. Working in those high-pressure environments taught him to quickly turn his spontaneity and creativity into a finished product, and helped shape his coaching and teaching.


The green “CONCERT SCHEDULE AND RESERVATIONS” button on this page will take you to a schedule of concerts. There is no need to sign in to view the schedule, but when you click “Add to Cart” to reserve seats, you will be asked to sign in with a user ID and password. If you have bought a concert ticket in the last several years, that info was emailed to you on or around April 26, 2018. If you have misplaced your info, click on “Forgot” and enter the primary email for your household (the one that receives concert directions and/or invoices from Mt Top). That address will then receive an email with your credentials (you may have to check your spam).  You can also call our office between 10 and 5  Monday through Thursday and we will give you your information. If you are a new user (never registered for a lesson, purchased a concert ticket, or recently donated to Mountain Top), you must create an account in order to purchase a concert ticket. You will receive email confirmation of your payment.
