T. Lavitz

T Lavitz began his intensive study of classical and jazz piano at age seven. At the same time, the Beatles invaded America, igniting in T a lifelong love of rock music.

By twenty-two, he was asked to join the “rock, jazz, and everything else” instrumental band, the Dixie Dregs. It was a dream come true, because they were one of his favorite bands, even at that relatively early stage in their career.

This first taste of fame happened during the last few days of 1978, lasting until the band split in 1983, by which time T had been voted “Best New Talent” in Keyboard Magazine's readers poll and the band had garnered four Grammy nominations.
