Chuck Bergeron is professor of jazz history and ensemble program coordinator at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music and is a leading figure in the field of jazz education. His students and ensembles have won many national and international awards and competitions. In addition to working with students majoring in music and jazz studies, Chuck is responsible for teaching the evolution of jazz and the history of rock and roll to 400 non-music major students each semester at the University of Miami.

As a jazz bassist and composer, Chuck’s unique approach to improvisation compositional style reflect the wide variety of musical influences while confirming a deep commitment to his musical cultural heritage as a native New Orleanian. This can be seen in his leadership of the South Florida Jazz Orchestra — a critically acclaimed, modern big band comprising many of the top jazz artists and studio musicians in Miami.
