Sam Golden has been teaching at Rock School since 2017 as a guitar, bass, drums, and piano instructor. He began playing violin at the age 4 and added piano and guitar to his repertoire by the age of 11. After playing in youth orchestras, string camps, and folk-rock bands in high school, Sam turned his focus to composition. He received a BA in Music Composition from Arizona State University in 2011. Sam began teaching piano lessons shortly thereafter and has taught in a variety of schools and homes with students aged 3 to 65. From 2010-2015 Sam wrote, played guitar, and sang for Sun Bones, a Tucson art-rock band. He recorded a full-length album and toured nationally from 2014-2016 with Laura and the Killed Men. Sam moved to St. Louis in August 2016 to take advantage of our city’s thriving music scene.
