Chase Sanborn Bio
Born and raised in New Jersey, after attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Chase Sanborn began his life as a professional musician in San Francisco. A highlight of his early career was a year spent on tour with Ray Charles.
Since moving to Toronto in 1981, Chase has been a mainstay of the jazz and commercial music scene, with a slew of performing and recording credits, including five albums released as a leader.
A dedicated educator, Chase is an Associate Professor of Jazz at the University of Toronto. He has published a series of books and posted hundreds of videos pertaining to jazz improvisation, jazz history, brass playing and the business of managing a musical career.
I have been a Yamaha Artist for most of my career, and owned just about every Yamaha pro trumpet model since the the first-generation 6335H. (That's the 25th Anniversary Xeno in the pic.)
As a performing artist and clinician I laud and share Yamaha's commitment to music education and relish the opportunity to share my knowledge and love for music with young (or not-so-young) musicians.
