In 1965, Mark Ingerman was born in Odessa, Ukraine. He began his musical career at the age of four and a half in the Odessa Conservatory under the watchful eye of Stefan Krizhanovsky and quickly excelled at performance and composition, being the first Jewish child to win the prestigious “Young Composer” Award from the Odessa Conservatory in Ukraine at the age of nine years old.

Among his first works were the "Sonatina Album for Children" along with “Etudes” and other Piano compositions he readily performed. The child flourished under the harsh environment of Communist Russia, but as it may, at that time a Jewish child would not have the opportunity to develop his career. His parents were repeatedly congratulated for having an exceptionally gifted musician on their hands, and in the same breath were informed that he will never amount to anything and should go to where all Jews belong, the state of Israel. The family attempted to immigrate to the Jewish State, but with the rest of the family already settled in America, they willingly followed suit.

At the age of thirteen, Mark was accepted to the "Settlement Music School" in Philadelphia, PA under full scholarship and resumed his progress in Classical and Jazz Composition and Performance. During the seasons of 1979 to 1980, he rehearsed as a stand in piano position at the Philadelphia Philharmonics. At the age of sixteen, Mark entered the CuPhiladelphia College of Performing Arts under full scholarship and mentorship of Sophia Levinson and Benjamin Whitten. In the span of his Collegiate Career, there were numerous commissions of his works from international string quartets as well as solo artists, recitals and performances. He also served as an advisory for a local JCC Music Program. Upon graduation, he embarked on a successful teaching career, simultaneously exploring the local Jazz scenes in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston while continuously performing his original compositions.
