Mr. Gumbs, Jr. established G-Clef Music Academy in 2011 because of his sincere passion for teaching music and developing quality musicians. He holds a bachelor's degree in music education from Clark Atlanta University and has worked in the education system of the U.S. Virgin Islands for over 18 years. Gumbs is an accomplished musician. In the early part of his career, he performed with jazz music giants, such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, and Ray Charles. Since his early days in music, he has played for many community bands and held positions as the lead pianist or bassist for local churches. He has also creatively contributed to the USVI by writing jingles for government agencies and Alma-Maters for two St. Thomas schools.
In 2019, Gumbs expanded G-Clef Music Academy to the island of St. Croix. Through Gumbs' leadership, G-Clef has become the largest privately run music school in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
