Justin Snyder has worked with artists from many diverse art forms. He has collaborated with dancers, poets, performance artists, fashion designers, and filmmakers. An advocate of new music, he has worked with composers such as Libby Larsen, William Bolcom, Jake Heggie, John Musto, Jonathan Dove, Tucker Fuller, and Mohammed Fairouz. He has collaborated with and performed world premieres by William Bolcom, Jonathan Dove, Tucker Fuller, and Libby Larsen. He has recorded for the Czech National Radio and recently performed live on BBC Radio 3.

Some of the venues he has performed at include Wigmore Hall, the U.S. Supreme Court, The Tank (New York), the Barbican Main Hall and Barbican Pit, The Horse Hospital, Sadler's Wells (in collaboration with Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal), the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the Guangzhou Opera House, and the National Center for the Performing Arts (Beijing). He has toured and given concerts in Asia, Europe, South America, and North America, including lecture-concert tours in partnership with the U.S. Embassies in China and Chile with Alexander Bernstein, the son of Leonard Bernstein.

Justin is also the co-founder, along with Irena Menk, of ESCforescent- a multi-sensory collective which merges the arts and sciences to create wholly different sensorial experiences .

Justin studied with Christopher Harding in Piano Performance and with Martin Katz for Masters in Collaborative Piano at the University of Michigan. His second masters degree was in London with Pamela Lidiard and Graham Johnson at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
