Neil Carson teaches students from Hersey High School. 

Neil Carson

Hey there! I'm a saxophonist, composer, and teacher working as a professional musician in Chicago since 2016. I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in jazz studies from University of Miami, Florida. My jazz-pop fusion band New Nostalgia released its critically-acclaimed debut album in 2019, and has received airplay on Chicago's jazz station WDCB 90.9 FM. I am active as a performer, composer, and educator throughout the Chicago area, and hold teaching positions at the School for Music Vocations in Creston, IA, and Hersey and Stevenson high schools.
