与兰乔圣菲文化平台合作的伯克利音乐学院木管系教授 Frank Tiberi，是次中音及中音萨克斯演奏家、单簧管演奏家、长笛演奏家、巴松管演奏家。伯克利音乐学院管木管系教授。
生于美国新泽西州卡姆登市。该市位于费城边上，是诸多簧乐器吹奏者的出生地，如Jimmy Heath、Benny Golson和已故的 Charlie Ventura、Stan Getz、John Coltrane等。浓厚的音乐氛围极大地影响了Tiberi。
他8岁接触单簧管，13岁开始系统学习，跟随Bob Chester、Benny Goodman、Urbie Green等人参加巡演，与Dizzy Gillespie等合作演奏。自学长笛(同时还曾跟随费城管弦乐团知名音乐人Sol Schoenbach学习巴松)。1969年前在很多百老汇音乐剧中演奏多种乐器。1969年成为伍德赫尔曼乐团著名的四兄弟(三个次中音，一个上低音)簧乐器部成员。自此，历任乐队的特约独奏家、声部长、编曲者、音乐总监等。1987年成为伍德赫尔曼乐团队长。他对乐队做出了重大贡献，尤其是对John Coltrane的两首作品“Giant Steps”和“Countdown”的巧妙改编，为乐团赢得了极大地关注和媒体热评。
他曾与众多顶级音乐家合作演奏，且获得无数荣誉。他还参与了无数一流音乐精品的录制，如：GIANT STEPS、THUNDERING HERD以及赫尔曼作品集、WOODY、WOODY BRAND NEW、RAVEN SPEAKS、LIVE AT MONTREUX、CHILDREN OF LIMA(包括其巴松独奏)、KING COBRA、40th ANNIVERSARY、MAIN EVENT (Frank Sinatra)、TOGETHER AGAIN (Flip Phillips)、FEELING SO BLUE、ROAD FATHER、CHICK-DONALD-WALTER-WOODROW (Chick Corea Suite)、LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL (Teresa Brewer)、LIVE AT MONTEREY (其对Coltrane的Countdown改编)、MY BUDDY (Rosemary Clooney)、50th ANNIVERSARY、WOODY'S GOLD STAR、WOODY HERMAN LEGACY、LIVE AT RONNY SCOTT'S (London England)、COINCIDENCE ( Harold Danko, Tom Harrell Dream Street Records)、TIBERIAN MODE ( 与Joe Lovano, George Garzone 和Andy Laverne的独奏专辑)等。他的音乐热忱、令人惊叹的即兴演奏以及改编才能在以上作品中得以充分展现。
他多年来致力于研究和发展Coltrane的音乐，并将其十连音的概念普遍推广，同时借鉴了 Charlie Parker的一些音乐理念。他是众多音乐家，尤其是萨克斯音乐家的精神领袖，为业内提供源源不断的灵感与鼓舞。早在师从赫尔曼时，他就开始对音乐教育感兴趣。对方曾评价他说“我很认可他在音乐教育方面的能力，因为他在同我一起参加研讨会时展现出了一个一流的音乐指导家的能力”。Tiberi 目前是伯克利音乐学院木管系的教授，致力于培养学生即兴表演的能力且同时领导伍德赫尔曼管弦乐团。
Frank Tiberi, a reed section all-star since 1969 and leader since 1987.
Frank Tiberi studied clarinet at age 8; started playing professionally at 13; toured with Bob Chester, Benny Goodman, Urbie Green, played with Dizzy Gillespie, self taught on flute, (somewhere in between studied bassoon with the renowned Sol Schoenbach of the Philadelphia Orchestra) played as a doubler in many Broadway musical shows before settling into the illustrious "Four Brothers" sound (three tenors and baritone) reed section of the Woody Herman Band in 1969 where, he became a featured soloist, section leader, arranger, music director and ultimately leader of the Herman Band in 1987. FT's contributions include his brilliant arrangement of John Coltrane's Giant Steps and Countdown, which helped measurably to steer the band's reportorial direction with refreshment.
Coincidentally, having been born in Camden, New Jersey, a bordering city of Philadelphia, which is the birthplace of, among other noted reedman, the late Charlie Ventura, Jimmy Heath, the late Stan Getz (a Herman alumnus) and Benny Golson; and the adopted home-town of the late John Coltrane. A quality bumper- crop from within virtually the same neighborhood.
Tiberi has been associated with far too many great musicians to mention. The same is true of the credits due him, a partial list of which are: GIANT STEPS and THUNDERING HERD and is featured on both. He is also featured on the Herman albums, WOODY; WOODY BRAND NEW, RAVEN SPEAKS; LIVE AT MONTREUX; CHILDREN OF LIMA, (includes his bassoon solo); KING COBRA; 40th ANNIVERSARY; MAIN EVENT (Frank Sinatra); TOGETHER AGAIN (Flip Phillips); FEELING SO BLUE; ROAD FATHER; CHICK-DONALD-WALTER-WOODROW (Chick Corea Suite); LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL (Teresa Brewer); LIVE AT MONTEREY (his own arrangement of Coltrane's Countdown); MY BUDDY (Rosemary Clooney); 50th ANNIVERSARY; WOODY'S GOLD STAR; WOODY HERMAN LEGACY; LIVE AT RONNY SCOTT'S (London England); COINCIDENCE ( Harold Danko, Tom Harrell Dream Street Records); and TIBERIAN MODE ( Solo Album with Joe Lovano, George Garzone and Andy Laverne), his epiphanies as a thrilling, imperious improviser and composer can now be better disclosed and shared.
A devout scholar of Coltrane's harmonic development has totally internalized Coltrane's concepts of deceptive resolution, his thorough digestion of Coltrane fed into FT's conceptual development which also included assimilation from Charlie Parker’s way of restructuring/ reharmonizing tunes. Also, FT is like a guru of MVP stature among musicians, especially saxophonists - providing informal mentorship’s of lasting inspiration.
Tiberi has been interested and active in music education since his early days with Herman, who said of him, "I thoroughly endorse his ability as a music educator as he so justifiably performed as a leading clinician throughout all of my scheduled seminars." Tiberi is presently on the woodwind faculty as an PROFESSOR at BERKLEE COLLEGE of MUSIC in Boston teaching improvisation to performance students and continues to direct the WOODY HERMAN ORCHESTRA.
