Chase

Being born into a musical family, Chase has been exposed to the art of music his whole life. He started playing piano at the age of two and at the age of five, was already composing his own pieces. Joining band in the fifth grade, he decided play saxophone (which he had already been playing for some time) to take after his father. At the age of eleven, his uncle passed on to him an old King trombone which sparked his love for brass. He played saxophone in his school’s marching band form eighth grade to his freshman year. Then, in his sophomore year, he was asked to march tuba due to the scarcity of players. He played tuba in his school’s top band and various concert settings such as: USF’s Festival of Winds, Music in Our Schools, IRSC’s Four County Honor Band, and the Port St. Lucie Community Band. He was also in his schools jazz band playing piano, bass, saxophone, and trumpet. Over the years, he has learned to play guitar, flute, clarinet, mallet percussion, drums, french horn, mellophone, euphonium and flugelhorn. In 2015, Chase decided to take his musicianship to the next level. He marched as a charter member with Solaris Drum Corps in their inaugural year, performing in the Georgia Dome at the DCI Southeastern Championships. He teaches over twelve instruments and continues to spread his musical talent to the students at Key To Music.
