Ian McElroy - Bass Guitar
“Music is a language that we all have our own way of speaking, playing, and understanding. As a teacher my main focus is to bring out each students individual voice on their instrument in a positive atmosphere.”
Ian McElroy has been playing music for as long as he can remember. In his career he has shared the stage and studio with Stereoplane, Justin Hewitt, Vince Vaccaro, Pat Steward (Bryan Adams, The Odds), John Andrews (Tegan and Sara), The Impostors (Justin Hewitt), and The Broken Strings (featuring Adam and Antonia from Jets Overhead). His band Stereoplane was chosen as the headline act for the Nanaimo VANOC Olympic Torch Relay for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
After leaving the Vancouver Island Universities Jazz Program Ian has been teaching bass for the past three years at Groove Studios, and regularly performing around the Victoria area.
