Jeffrey Anderle

Clarinetist/bass clarinetist Jeff Anderle enjoys an extremely diverse musical life. He is a pioneer in the world of low reeds, from Sqwonk’s tongue-in-cheek ferocity to Edmund Welles’ “heavy chamber music” to the complex buzzings of the reed quintet Splinter.  An exponent of contemporary classical music, Jeff is a member of the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, Paul Dresher Electro/Acoustic Band and the bi-coastal ensemble REDSHIFT.  In addition, Jeff is a founding co-director of Switchboard Music, which presents an annual marathon concert featuring music that fuses different genres and styles.  In addition to U.C. Berkeley, Jeff is on the faculty of the S.F. Conservatory of Music where he teaches clarinet, chamber music, and music business. Jeff holds a M.M. from SFCM and a B.A. from the University of California-Los Angeles.
