Freddie B.'s love for music began at age 8 when his mother bought him a keyboard for Christmas. While other kids his age were taking formal music lessons, Freddie was able to learn the basics to music completely by ear, playing along with what he'd see and hear on the radio and tv. By the age of 16, he began venturing out as an independent musician and freelance keyboardist, playing in bands, churches, and ensembles at school, exploring genres such as gospel, jazz, rock, pop, alternative, and r&b, as well as studying music classes at Joliet Junior College where he learned sight-reading and music theory. He then attended the SAE Institute of Technology in Chicago, IL where he obtained an Associates in Science Degree in Audio Technology. Upon graduating from SAE Institute Freddie has been a enthusiast in music technology, production, composition, sound design, and synthesis for virtual instruments, all of which he uses in his day to day workflow, with hopes of one day composing for film and television. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and skill by means of engineering, live performance, and teaching, and also being a part of the band of his church.
