Jerry Kovarsky

Jerry Kovarsky is a music industry veteran who has worked as a product manager, marketing director, product developer and demonstrator for Korg, Ensoniq and Casio over a 30-plus year career. He was part of the teams that introduced award-winning and influential products such as the KORG Triton, the KORG Oasys, and the Ensoniq ASR-10. An accomplished keyboardist/synthesist, Jerry has been a passionate advocate for making music with keyboards, and likes to live at that intersection of technology and art.

Inspired by the groundbreaking music of Wendy Carlos and Keith Emerson amongst others, he added a Minimoog to his keyboard rig, and still owns that same instrument. Graduating with a B.A. in Jazz Studies from William Paterson College (after time also spent at the University of Miami), his jazz aspirations were sidetracked by an opportunity to record and demonstrate the early Casio keyboards, which hooked him into the world of the musical products industry.

He is the author of Keyboards for Dummies, and writes a monthly column “The Art of Synth Soloing” for Keyboard Magazine.
