    "I've composed since the age of 14—or even younger—and have always improvised. When I sit down at the piano, both those things almost always come out, and they feed each other. About eight years ago I started a class called New Music Improvisation that's not based on songs, like jazz is; it can be based on anything. Some of it is just free improvisation. Some of it is based on images, or reactions to poetry, or even specific instructions I give. We go into that area where jazz and classical merge, where the labels fall away and it could be any kind of style."

    David Tronzo has devoted most of his life to music since he first became mesmerized by it as a youthful rock influenced teenager in the summer of 1970. He has literally and figuratively “traveled far” from his beginnings in rural Rochester, New York, where he was born in 1957, steadily honing his skills as a self-taught student to his modern-day evolution to becoming a world-renowned slide guitar musician and teacher.
