Bryant Snyder grew up in New York city. From a very early age he was intrigued by music and began formal study at the age of 12. His first instrument was drums/percussion, an instrument he studied and performed on for 11 years. At the age of 16, Bryant took an interest in guitar and started to take lessons. After a year he quit the lessons and began studying on his own, learning by ear.
By the time Bryant was in college, he was fully immersed in his school's music program, playing drums/percussion for their jazz band, concert band, pep band and many other musical functions around the university. It was around this time that he became interested in guitar again, this time through a local jazz guitarist, Bill Washer (Liza Minelli, Stevie Wonder). After taking lessons with Bill, Bryant became very in demand as a musician around the university, performing both on drums and guitar. During this time he played/worked with artists such as Lou Marini, Lew Del Gatto, Jim Pugh, Terrell Stafford, and Mark Murphy.
In 2003, Bryant moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Bryant performed, composed, and arranged music for many projects and performances in the Boston area. Some venues include Ryles Jazz club, and MIT's Kresege Auditorium.
Bryant graduated cum laude from the prestigious institution in 2007 with a dual major in guitar performance and jazz composition. After graduation Bryant was hired by Carnival Cruise Lines as a showband guitarist, a position he held for a year and half before being promoted to musical director.
Bryant is currently setting up projects in the New York City area.
