Chuck Stanley is a lifelong musician who started studying classical piano at the age of 7. In middle school, he picked up the trumpet and discovered a love for Jazz music, which he pursued up through college. He studied Music Theory and Composition as well as Jazz Piano at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV following high school. After a couple of years of study, he took a hiatus and returned to school in Little Rock, AR where he received a B.S. in physics from the local branch of the University of Arkansas.
Chuck’s passion for Jazz music and his talent as a musician have led him to become the leader of the inaugural season of the Triangle Pride Jazz Band, a new ensemble formed to showcase the talents of LGBTQ+ musicians in the Triangle area. Chuck was eager to help form the band and offered to help lead the new ensemble when he learned that there was a desire to form a Jazz branch of the band. He is both honored and overjoyed to lead this amazing group of musicians.
