Derek began his involvement with music starting with piano lessons at age 10. Since that time, he has continued to study piano and music theory. In college, he studied voice and was a member of several different choirs, including the University Chamber Singers. Derek graduated from NDSU with a degree in mathematics and a minor in music. His capstone paper focused on the relationships between abstract mathematical models and music theory. In addition to piano and voice, he has experience with guitar and ukulele.

Derek considers his teaching style to be extremely flexible but focused. He emphasizes good form, especially with respect to joint and muscle health. He also puts emphasis on making music by using expressive dynamics to help the music come to life.
