Who I Am

My name is William Bausch. Some know me as... Beaver. A long story involving naively sadistic parents and an obviously slow-witted child. I grew up in Newtown, CT, went to school in Ohio, lived in Boston for a year and headed to New York City. Seems I'm still here. Anyway, I like music a lot and have had the good fortune to study and play with some amazing folks like Donald Byrd, Allan Dawson, Enrique Plá, Ralph Peterson, Phil Bowler, Harvie S, and the late Juan Pablo Torres. I am part of a musical collective known as Grupo los Santos. I play in some other bands, including the spectacular Mark Miller ensemble. I am obsessed with music technology. And until quite recently, I was a music teacher in NYC public schools.
