Jazz Clinics, Master Classes, Adjudications
"Your passion, discipline, and wide-ranging knowledge of music are an inspiration to the younger generation. The students who played with you described the opportunity as a thrill they will always remember. I would recommend to any institution to bring you in for a masterclass, and we are very honored to have been the first."
- Community College of Rhode Island, Chair of Music Department
"Such an amazing experience! It is one thing when you hear a professor talk about expanding knowledge and practice but it is another to see the outcome of dedication. Thank you very much for taking the trip up to CNY for us and my fellow students."
- Onandaga Community College, NY, Music Club President
"As a vibraphonist, Mr. Chiasson has few peers. His composing prowess, especially in the area of jazz composition, are of the highest quality...As a guest lecturer of jazz history here at Quinnipiac, he always leaves the student audience totally stimulated."
