Samuel Zerna

Guitar, Bass, Piano

Samuel began his journey into music at age 8 while living in rural South Australia and soon found that music was his passion in life. His musical inclinations led him to undertake a Bachelor degree in Jazz Performance at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide, Australia and then on to further study in Melbourne, Australia where he earned an Honours Degree from the Victorian School of Music.

Since completing his studies, Samuel has had the opportunity to travel the world for performances in the U.S, Canada, Europe and throughout Australasia. He has also completed further musical study workshops in Banff, Canada and Brooklyn, New York.

As well as carving a path as a performer, Samuel has become a dedicated music educator with over 10 years of experience instructing students in musicianship, guitar, piano, bass guitar and double bass. 

Samuel’s enthusiasm towards music education and his commitment to his students' various needs have seen him train many well-rounded and capable musicians. His experience with various styles of music and with various pedagogical methods combined with his own formal studies in jazz and classical music provides an expansive basis for his lessons. Above all, Samuel is an improviser at heart and thrives on creating creative and engaging environments for both learning and performing music.
