Mr. Gorovitz has over 40 years experience as a music educator, performer (Saxophone & Clarinet) and Owner / President of a music company specializing in instrumental music instruction and building bands and orchestras in parochial and other non-public schools.

He started playing the clarinet at the age of 10 and saxophone at the age of 12. He began his professional career at the age of 16 at which time he also joined the Philadelphia Musicians Union (Local 77) so that he could play with bands in both union and non-union settings. That same summer, Marvin attended Indiana University on a Stan Kenton Jazz Band scholarship.

Marvin then attended Temple University College of Music where he received a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Music Education, and was elected student body president of the college in his junior year. While in college he was also teaching clarinet and saxophone and playing 2-3 combo jobs a week.

Our newest instructor was a clarinetist in the US Army and Army Reserve Band for 6 years and also doubled (sax & clarinet) in their Dance & Jazz Bands.

As the Owner / President of his music company, he set up the instrumental curriculums and started over 50 band and orchestral programs in PA, NJ and DE where his company also supplied instrumental teachers / band directors and rented instruments. In addition to playing professionally, Marvin played solo Saxophone with the Warminster Symphony Orchestra, and Clarinet / Saxophone with The Lower Merion and Tri-County Bands.

Marvin is the inventor of the "Click Tuning Barrel" which is a unique tuning Barrel which makes tuning a clarinet much easier while enhancing the overall quality of sound.

As a recent transplant from the Philadelphia Area, Marvin is delighted to be teaching at Brindley’s Music and sharing his musical background and experiences with his students. When not teaching or performing, you can usually find Marvin on the racquetball court tuning up for his next tournament or attending his grandsons’ events.
