Keith Evan Green is a drummer and percussionist
based in Ithaca, New York. He plays music of all styles,
with a focus on small-group jazz.

Green studied drums, vibes, and marimba with Glenn
Weber at the New Jersey School of Percussion. He
began his university studies as a music major at
Northwestern University's School of Music (Evanston,
Illinois). In his early years as a percussionist, Green
performed in the New Jersey All-State Band and in
the orchestra of Fairleigh Dickinson University (which,
during his association, performed at Carnegie Hall).
At the same time, he played drums throughout the NYC-
metro area with a band led by
pianist Larry Ferrara,
director of music performance at NYU. Outside of the
New York metro area, Green performed widely and
also taught drums in Seattle and San Francisco.

While advancing a career as a Cornell University professor,
Green performs with his jazz group, FireFly Trio (click

Leigh
(click here for website, here for a flyer), saxophonist
Greg Lofaro, and others.

Keith Evan Green is an endorser of CANOPUS drums.
