Dave Markstein began 10 years of classical piano lessons when he was 7 years old.  The last few years were under Prof. Emeritus George Haddad of The Ohio State University.  Prof. Haddad was said to be a 3rd generation pupil of the famous French composer Claude Debussy, which makes Dave a 4th generation pupil of Debussy.  Dave can’t prove it and he doesn’t even play Clair de Lune, but it sounds cool so we’ll just go with it.  Dave was the music director at church for over 7 years in Monroe, Ohio, and played as part of the duo “The Haze Project” around Cincinnati from 2011-2013.  Dave has spent the last 32 years dabbling on jet engine technology and other mechanical pursuits.
