Born into a musically-rich family in the strange and beautiful city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Brian Donohoe has been playing piano since he was a toddler.
While completing Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at the University of North Texas College, Brian won two Down Beat Magazine awards as a soloist and band-leader and recorded four albums with the Grammy-nominated One O’clock Lab Band. Brian was a founding member of the multi-Grammy-award-winning band Snarky Puppy before forming his own jazz-funk fusion group, Progger, who have released four critically-acclaimed albums and built an international following.
While serving as Progger’s music director, keyboardist, saxophonist, and primary composer, he also composes for television and film and appears on recordings by Okkervil River, Bill Laurance, Sly5thAve, and many more. He has taught music for over fifteen years.Back to Classes & Teachers>
