As a composer, he has written hundreds of pieces mostly in jazz and modern classical context. Samuel’s talent has been recognized by his peers all over the world.

After hearing Mösching, John Hollenbeck, who is one of the most influential composers and drummers of our time once said : “Samuel’s time feel is as strong as a tree.”

Samuel Mösching started playing the guitar at the age of ten. His talent got recognized during his first lessons. His teacher was able to see, past the young student’s hyperactive and unfocused energy, a remarkable ability capable of picking up instrumental skills.

Samuel’s first compositions arose at the age of 12. To date, he has written hundreds of pieces for different groups and instruments. Also while he was 12, his new instrumental teacher, Anton Brüschweiler, decided to immediately confront his new, highly talented student with jazz harmonics, scales and ear training. Instead of just learning the motion of the scales, the young guitarist decided to sing the material the same time he played it. This explains why most of the time Mösching still sings the notes he’s improvising.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
