"Doing what you want is hard when that want is playing music.

About the Author:

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. A multidimensional composer who listens to a colossal range of styles, his eclectic output reflects this musical world. His music regularly features interdisciplinary components, and 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.
