Taylor Gersbach 


I am Taylor Gersbach. My degree at California College of the Arts focused on Community Art, Sound and Sculpture. As both Artist and Musician, I love to bridge the divide between making art and music. When I am not teaching these themes in Oakland and around the East Bay, I perform, write, record music… and make instruments.
