Mark Dziuba About the Educator

When he's not in the classroom as Director of Jazz Studies at SUNY New Paltz, or teaching privately, or spending summers as a veteran NGW faculty member, you're sure to find Mark making music somewhere else. It's been said that Mark's playing inspires "you to spell Jazz with three" z's instead of two"(Poughkeepsie Journal, Feb. 20, 2003). His gig calendar is full playing in Trio Loco (which sometimes turns Duo Loco), Dziubalicious, or as a guest with various other top jazz musicians. Mark also finds time to write and record original music.
