About Jason

Praised for his “passion and commitment” at the keyboard, Jason Terry has given performances throughout North America, Asia, and Europe as both a soloist and collaborative pianist. For four years, he toured nationally with a professional quartet performing nearly 100 concerts annually. His performances have been broadcast on NPR stations around the country ranging from the standard literature to the premiers of new compositions. In the last year, engagements have spanned the globe from Gothenburg to Paris and Chicago to Seoul. Domestic highlights of the 2022—23 season include Carnegie Hall, the Peabody Institute, and the National World War I Museum.

In addition to live performances, he was recently invited to serve as a recording artist for Steinway’s Spirio piano and has also been contracted to record piano works for a forthcoming music theory textbook promoting diverse examples of music literature. An artist-teacher, he continues to serve as a piano faculty member for the world-renowned Interlochen Arts Camp as well as Interlochen Online. Additionally, Terry has been on faculty for the Beijing International Music Festival as a master teacher. He is an enthusiast of arts advocacy, especially in matters of social and cultural diplomacy. Since 2017, he has been affiliated with the NGO American Voices and has traveled to perform and coach rising musicians throughout the Middle East. Moreover, recent grants have supported his work using art to fight against social injustices such as human trafficking.

Dr. Jason Terry, a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music, is Assistant Professor of Piano at Samford University where he serves as Director of Keyboard Studies.

I am passionate about helping 21st-century artists find their niche in the world based on their passions and abilities.
