Born in Brooklyn, composer and guitarist Sandy Prager has been playing guitar since the age of 12. He is a seventh-generation musician which includes his father, jazz trombonist Bert Prager, who was also his first teacher. In addition, his grandmother was a klezmer singer of note. Add growing up in Latin-flavored Miami and you have a good idea of the rich varieties of musics which go into Prager's compositional melting pot.

While in Miami, he studied at the University of Miami and with jazz giant Ira Sullivan, eventually landing in Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music. In addition to performing his own works, Prager has written for television. He is well known in the Boston area for his teaching approach, which is as unique as his performing style. When not playing, Sandy can be seen training for a marathon or conveying his angle on life through the art form of punning, though thankfully not both at the same time.
