Jeff Anderle is a pioneer in the world of low reeds, helping to popularize the role of the modern clarinet and bass clarinet through his innovative and diverse performances, ensembles, and commissions.
He is a founding member of Splinter Reeds, the Bay Area’s first reed quintet, and half of the bass clarinet duo Sqwonk, which has commissioned and premiered a significant body of work that infuses aspects of classical, folk and popular music into its own distinct style. He is a clarinetist in the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and performs regularly with a wide range of music institutions from orchestras to diverse chamber music ensembles. Former ensemble memberships include REDSHIFT contemporary music ensemble, the Paul Dresher Electro/Acoustic Band, and the virtuosic, heavy metal bass clarinet quartet Edmund Welles. Through these various projects, he has commissioned or premiered over 150 works and been featured nationally at festivals and masterclasses.
Jeff is a founding co-director of Switchboard Music, a presenting organization which has featured hundreds of innovative musicians through its annual marathon and concert series. He is chair of the woodwind department at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he teaches clarinet, bass clarinet, chamber music, and professional development; he has also given masterclasses across the country on these topics. He has served on the faculty at U.C. Berkeley and, as a member of Amoveo Ensemble, holds a guest artist residency at California State University East Bay. He holds a M.M. from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a B.A. from University of California at Los Angeles.
