Logan began his musical life at a young age, studying the guitar and music theory at the age of 7. Through the instrument, he found a love for composers such as Michael Hedges and Heitor Villa-Lobos who utilized percussive and extended techniques, driving him down a path that would encourage him to push boundaries. He began to compose pieces for solo guitar at the age of 8, pieces that would become the first of many. In high school, a chance hearing of a Mozart recording enthralled him. After the experience, his curiosity led him to immediately begin serious study of the piano, classical composition, and conducting. These classical disciplines provide Logan with the most enjoyment and artistic satisfaction out of any pursuit he has undertaken, and he continues down this route as a performing pianist-composer. As a composer, he has composed cycles and sonatas for the piano, string quartets, various pieces for duo combinations and small ensembles, orchestral works, a concerto for piano and orchestra, and pedagogical pieces for his students.

He has studied composition and piano with Dr. Lowell Liebermann, one of the foremost American composers. In the conducting realm, Logan has studied with Kenneth Lieberson, previous director of the Symphonic Orchestra at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts. Logan has had the pleasure of learning from pianists such as Marilyn Groves, Zelma Bodzin, and Audrey Axinn, and has studied counterpoint and interpretation with composer Robert Cuckson.
