Max Greenberg is in his first year as a graduate student in the Jazz & Contemporary Media department at Eastman. Max just finished his BM in jazz studies this past spring at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, OH.
Before moving to Rochester in August, he was busy with many different projects including teaching, accompanying, and gigging around the tri-state area; including performances with the Blue Wisp Big Band, Richmond Symphony Orchestra, and the Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra. During the first half of 2014, he had the sublime opportunity to study a semester abroad in São Paulo and delve into the rhythms of Brazilian music and culture. He began studying classical piano at the age of five and jazz piano when he was eight.
