After completing his undergraduate work at Tufts University (B.S. Mathematics, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and the New England Conservatory of Music (U.D. in Jazz Piano Performance), pianist, composer, and educator Jarrett Cherner moved to San Francisco where he quickly gained a reputation as "one of the most exciting young pianist-composers on the Bay Area scene" (San Jose Mercury News).
His debut album as a leader, Burgeoning (2006), earned him recognition from the ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Awards and critics alike.
In 2008, Cherner relocated to New York City where he's currently performing and teaching, having earned a Master's Degree from the Manhattan School of Music in 2010.
He has toured throughout the U.S. as well as in South America, Canada, and Europe, both leading his own trio and working as a sideman.
Current projects include the Jarrett Cherner Trio and the collective ensemble Sketches, which released Volume One in November 2013, and Volume Two in October 2014.
