Wall formed Spyro Gyra in the mid-1970s with classmate Jay Beckenstein. Although each took time off to attend college, the band stayed intact. Wall attended Columbia University, then moved to Buffalo where Beckenstein was attending college. Wall then moved to California to attend California Institute of the Arts, graduating with a B.F.A. in Music Composition. He later received an M.M. in Studio Composition from Purchase College in 2001. He has recorded extensively as producer, keyboardist, composer and arranger in all genres of music and has released over 70 of his own compositions. Wall has also been nominated for several Grammys as a producer, pianist and composer. His composition “Shakedown” was nominated for a Grammy award for “Best Pop Instrumental.” He was the featured soloist at the Shenandoah Bach Festival in 2004.

Wall worked as an adjunct professor at both Ramapo and Purchase College before joining SUNY Oneonta, where he teaches courses relating to contemporary issues in the music industry and songwriting. He also leads the jazz funk band. These classes draw upon Wall's history with Spyro Gyra and his experience in the music industry.


Wall, along with the SUNY Oneonta Funk Band ensemble, often plays music on campus and in the surrounding area. Jeremy is also working closely with an up-and-coming rock band Red Goodbye, from Oneonta, NY.
