Darrell Grant, M.M.
Associate Professor of Music

Jazz Studies, Jazz Piano

Jazz pianist and composer Darrell Grant has performed in some of the best clubs in the country as a sideman to legends like Betty Carter and Chico Freeman, while his recordings as a bandleader have won critics' praise. But his most important gig is right here at Portland State, where he communicates the joy of jazz to the students of PSU's award-winning Jazz Studies program. Darrell's students have the ideal opportunity to apply classroom theory to the real-world challenges facing working musicians located in the heart of Oregon's cultural center. In other words, it's an education that swings.
