Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Taiwanese-American trombonist, Peter Lin, has been recently described by Downbeat Magazine as “solid, fluid, and smooth”. He received his B.A. Music from William Paterson University and MM for Jazz Trombone Studies at Rutgers University. He was involved with Jazz House Kids for over three years as both the Assistant Manager of the Summer Workshop as well as the Manager of the Emerging Musicians Program.

Deeply rooted in the trombone tradition, he has studied with jazz luminaries such as Slide Hampton, Curtis Fuller, Conrad Herwig, and Steve Turre. As a featured soloist and sideman, Peter has performed with world-class jazz artists including Slide Hampton, Steve Davis, Winard Harper, Charli Persip, Anthony Nelson Jr., Wayne Escoffery, Johnathan Blake, Josh Evans, Valarie Ponomarev, Jack Jeffers, Kenny Davis, Steve Williams, and Radam Schwartz. Most recently, Peter Lin performed at Slide Hampton's 85th Birthday with Steve Turre, Kenny Barron, Rufus Reid, and Victor Lewis. With various groups of all musical genres, he has performed at venues and festivals including The Clifford Brown Festival, The Riverview Jazz Festival, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, the Blue Note, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Smalls, Duke's Southern Table, Zinc Bar, and Swing 46. He also leads his own jazz small group, The Lintet, which remains active in the tri-state area.

In addition to being an active performer, Peter Lin is a dedicated educator, teaching in both the private lesson setting as well as the classroom. His students have gone off to college such as Montclair State University for music. He also has worked at the Jazz House Summer Workshop, the Jazz Arts in Red Bank, Newark Academy's Summer Jazz Camp, and at Andy's Family Music Center. He also founded the “NJ Jazz Sessions” page on Facebook, which advertises all jazz jam sessions in New Jersey.
