Ted Howe was born in Boston, MA with a fascination for sound from the day he was born. A penchant for
sound from a toddler may not always be a parent's dream. However, this love of sound grew as did that of
the Red Sox from the attention he received from his Uncle Oly, who introduced him both to jazz and to
baseball. Young Ted listened to every jazz album he could find, attended many jazz concerts and quickly
found his favorites amongst Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, Oscar Peterson, George
Shearing, Dave Brubeck and Bill Evans.
Ted began studying piano in his tender teens with Harry Smith one of the legendary founders of the
Berklee College Of Music
