Dahveed Behroozi

Piano – Jazz Camp Week 2, Advanced Package, Jazz Camp Package

Pianist and Composer Dahveed Behroozi is a San Francisco Bay Area based musician.  His focus is in jazz, classical, and new music.  He is an active player both as a leader and sideman in the Bay Area, nationally and internationally.

Behroozi’s expansive musical palette comes from a wide array of places that almost seem endless.  His musical frame of reference ranges from Bach, Brahms, Schoenberg, Alban Berg, 20th century jazz luminaries, as well as the rock and ambient worlds.

Born in CA in 1981, the son of a classical guitarist, Behroozi quickly came into contact with the classical canon, and soon developed a strong interest in Jazz.  By his teens, he became an active sideman, and would later go back east to study at the Manhattan School of Music, as well as Brooklyn College.  It was during his time in NYC, where he was able to develop his sound and concept by playing and studying with some of the finest musicians.

Dahveed has released 3 full-length records.  His most recent, Standard Fare is a solo piano record released in June 2023 on Sunnyside Records.

Currently, he serves on the music faculty at Gavilan College as well as San Jose State University.
