a b o u t

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 the
School of Music at Northwestern University (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 with which he
performed at Carnegie Hall. At the same time, he played
drums throughout the NYC-metro area with a band led
by
pianist Larry Ferrara who later became Director of
Music Performance at NYU.
Green has performed widely
and taught students, also, in Seattle and San Francisco.

While advancing a career outside music (as professor
at Cornell University), Green continues to perform
across New York and neighboring states with his jazz
group, Firefly Trio, and as a member of groups featuring
singer Diana Leigh, guitarist Dave Richman, and others.
Keith Evan Green is an endorser of CANOPUS drums.
