Jeremy Osterling, Saxophonist, Composer/Arranger and Educator, is transpiring on the scene with a positive impact. Born in Cromwell, CT on November 25, 1983, music has since consumed his life as he knows it. At age 8, Jeremy decided saxophone was the way to go. Since the age of 12, Jeremy started performing and traveling in community groups.
For the next 7 years, Jeremy traveled all over the United States (Sacremento Jazz Festival, Capitol Building in Washington D.C., Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center, and the New Orleans French Quarter Festival) performing in big bands and Traditional Jazz Quintets. Besides performing, composition and arranging caught Jeremy's eye at a young age. He began to study composition and arranging privately with Eric Osterling and Walter Gwardyak at the age of 14.
Jeremy hightened his skills by attending the Greater Hartford Academy for the Arts (GHAA) for his last two years of high school. Pursuing Music Education, Jeremy attended Western Connecticut State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. Jeremy was fortunate to have the oppurtunity to perform with many guest clinicians, which included Bob Berg, Fred Hersch, Don Braden, Terrell Stafford and Christian McBride as well as experience Master Classes and Clinics from Jamey Aebersold, Phil Woods, John Scofield, Barry Harris, Clark Terry, Chick Corea, Christian McBride, John Benitez. Jeremy is licensed in the State of Connecticut and currently teachers K-8 General Music and 4-8 Gifted and Talented in Hartford, CT.
