David Cutler

David Cutler balances a varied career as a jazz and classical composer, pianist, educator, arranger, conductor, collaborator, concert producer, author, blogger, consultant, speaker, advocate, and entrepreneur. In all these pursuits, he works to push boundaries while connecting with new audiences. His book The Savvy Musician (www.savvymusician.com) helps musicians 1) build a career, 2) earn a living, & 3) make a difference.

A multi-dimensional composer who listens to a colossal range of styles, Cutler's eclectic output reflects this musical world. With a vocabulary ranging from beautiful lyricism to rhythmic sophistication and bizarre juxtapositions, his music regularly features interdisciplinary components. His playing is as wide-ranging as his composing, stretching what it means to be a pianist. Performances regularly incorporate improvisation, humor, audience interaction, choreography, technology, costuming, unique collaborations, and secondary instruments.

Dr. Cutler teaches at Duquesne University, where he also serves as Coordinator of Music Entrepreneurship Studies. Visit David Cutler online at: www.trunkmusic.org.
