Dave Barduhn received his education at Puccini Elementary, Buddy Rich JH, Count Basie HS, Sarah Vaughan CC, and the University of Stan Kenton. He has played piano for Ernie Andrews, Dianne Reeves, Diane Shuur, Mark Murphy, and several Stan Kenton Alumni Bands. In 2014 Dave conducted the Washington All-State Honor Jazz Choir featuring Don Shelton. His extensive list of jazz band charts are published with Hal Leonard and his vocal jazz with Goombah (SMP) Publications. After 30 years of teaching both vocal and instrumental jazz (his VJ group Genesis receiving 8 Downbeat awards and performing at 10 national conventions while at Mt. Hood CC) Dave is now on parole. However by a pardon from Pope Francis, Dave’s retirement was briefly interrupted and for two years was the jazz band director at the University of Portland. You are now to refer to him as “Father Barduhn”. So there!
