David Styer started piano at the age of 3 and by his teens was already writing harmonically complex arrangements. With influences such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Bruce Hornsby, he has spent his entire life immersed in the world of music and performance. His performances coupled with his ability to explain HOW music works is what makes David stand out.
His passion for music theory and composition has immensely contributed to his endeavors as a performer, composer, producer, sound engineer, and teacher. He has studied jazz theory under several accomplished musicians and has a passion for teaching music fundamentals.
David has vast experience with students of all ages and abilities and specializes in advanced concepts for music theory, songwriting, piano, and vocals.
His current project is the jazz/fusion band SPiNRaD, who has been writing and touring since 2008. Dave’s teaching style is relaxed and he feels that learning music should be a fun and inspiring experience.
