Aaron Wyanski

composer, pianist, educator


Aaron Wyanski is a composer, pianist, and educator whose work explores memory, perspective, and vulnerability. His music has been commissioned by the Amaranth String Quartet, Roger Zahab, percussionist Michael Jones, among others, and he has been an artist-in-residence at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Vermont College of Fine Arts. An active educator, Wyanski has taught at The Hartt School (University of Hartford), Sweet Briar College, and maintains a private studio. He holds a DMA in composition from The Hartt School, an MFA from The Vermont College of Fine Arts, and a BM in jazz studies from Purchase College (SUNY). Walking in the woods, drinking black tea, and re-watching episodes of Columbo are all integral facets of his artistic practice.
