Bio

Image - Gold Square “Our jazz studies students participate in a comprehensive program where they have the opportunity to interact directly with all of the jazz faculty.”  

Dr. Steven Dean Snyder Professor of Jazz Keyboard / Music Theory. A native Pennsylvanian, he holds Bachelors and Master Degrees in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas and a DMA in Piano Performance (Jazz Emphasis) from the University of Texas-Austin. His dissertation is entitled An Analysis of Interactive Improvisation Within Selected Recordings of the Bill Evans Trio Featuring Scott LaFaro and Paul Motion.

He has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia as well as appearing on fifteen recordings with artists such as Randy Brecker, Brannen Temple, Chris Maresh, Austin-based jazz quartet Odd Man Out, and the University of North Texas One o'Clock Lab Band. In 2004 he recorded two albums to be released later in the year.

Dr. Snyder was selected as one of 66 pianists from all over the world to compete in the Martial Solal International Jazz Piano Competition, which was held in Paris, France in October 2002.

BA Theatre / Dance Minor, Ashland, KY"MSU provides an environment to study and develop my craft beyond anything I could have hoped for when I here four years ago. The professionalism, the experience, and the leadership provided by the professors along with the drive, work ethic, and talent that is brought everyday by my classmates and myself makes this the ideal place for anyone who wants to become something more than what they are. I have grown so much as an artist and person in my time here, and I owe it all to MSU."
