Myers studied at Northern Illinois University, the University of Redlands, California State University at Fresno, the Conservatoire Américain at Fontainebleau (France), and the Peabody Conservatory of Music of Johns Hopkins University. His composition teachers were Wayne Bohrnstedt, Arthur Bryon, Nadia Boulanger, Sandor Veress, and Stefans Grové.

In his career as a woodwind performer, music educator, composer, and arranger, Myers has often appeared as a recitalist and big band performer. He taught for a number of years in the public schools of Illinois and California. He joined the faculty of Towson State University in 1963, where he was a professor of composition and theory, and retired in 1992.

Numerous performances and recordings of his solo, chamber, band, chorus, and orchestral works have contributed to his being granted an ASCAP Standard Panel Award annually since 1988.
