About Craig Strain

I am one of the fortunate ones who makes a living doing things I love. Composing, Arranging, Directing, leading various music ensembles, Performing and arrangeing are my passions. I retired from teaching after 30 years in public school, community colleges, Blue Lake FIne Arts Camp and some summers at Oakland University and dove into a more than full time job with the current musical outlets.


With many years of experience including leading bands, teaching, producing large scale events, conducting orchestras and big bands, I am ready to bring my skills and background to make your event or musical experience a successful one.


I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Music Performance and Political Science, a Bachelor of Music Education, as well as a Masters Degree in Music Composition and Trumpet from Eastern Michigan University.
