Jefferson Dalby

Jefferson Dalby began accompanying Ballet classes in 1979, using improvisation. He gradually taught himself to play classical music, and now relies heavily on Brahms, Schumann, and Glazunov, and many others. A modern dance accompanist at heart, he retains an organic connection to the movement, and uses a mixture of classical music, pop tunes, and improvisation. Mr. Dalby currently performs with several rock and country bands and two Elvises. He has played at University of North Carolina School of the Arts since 1992.
