Alan Ezra Smith received his B.A. in Music from Olivet College in Olivet, Michigan in 2014. In May of 2018 he received his Masters in Music with his centralized interest in theory and composition. At only 25 years old, Alan has received multiple awards for performance, academia, and has sent in multiple self-composed pieces. While still in his undergrad, Alan was the music teacher’s assistant, and music librarian to familiarize himself with a wide range of music standards. Alan particularly enjoys classical and jazz. In grad school, he continued to be an assistant to his professors as well as lead his own ensemble and play his own original pieces.
Alan has played and worked with some great names in Indianapolis jazz including Nick Tucker and Freddie Mendoza, who have played with Curtis Fuller and the Buselli Jazz Orchestra. In Alan’s spare time he loves hiking, being outdoors, cooking, composing, and spending time with his inspiration, his beautiful three year old son, Ezra Jacob Smith.
