Hi there! My name is Chris (aka Gruber). Thanks for visiting!

I'm a pianist, composer and educator from Toronto, Canada and I make electronic music with Ableton Live, MilkyTracker and Pico-8

I'm writing music all the time, but now with Patreon, I can release music regularly and directly to the people who want to hear it. This is the artist's dream: to have direct contact with their fans, family and friends!

For patrons, rewards include:

  • 5+ hrs of video tutorials on Pico-8 and chiptunes
  • 200+ carts and project files
  • 12,000+ words on jazz piano and improvisation
  • 12+ albums of music

Other rewards include getting feedback on YOUR music and monthly private lessons on piano, composing, improvisation, playing jazz and classical music. Of course, I’m open to feedback and suggestions for other rewards, please contact me!

More About Me:

As a pianist, I’ve released seven albums, am a member of the jazz trio Myriad3, and have toured the world. Here's my website dedicated to piano performance: chrisdonnellymusic.com



A few years ago, I became interested in making electronic music. Since then, I've released numerous albums of original music and soundtrack remakes. Here's my website dedicated to electronic music: grubermusic.com




I’m also very passionate about music education. I’ve been a piano instructor at the University of Toronto for ten years and have tutorial series on YouTube on making music in Pico-8 and MilkyTracker.  There's a tendency for music teachers to prefer only working with students who are "talented."  I enjoy teaching students at ALL levels.  

I'm also always striving to be a better teacher and musician; everything I teach I use to teach myself.  So, you can trust that I'm trying to share the best information and communicate it in the clearest way possible.

Thanks again for visiting, your support is greatly appreciated!
