Samson Ng,畢業於香港浸會大學(音樂文學碩士)及美國 Musicians Institute(現代鋼琴演奏學士),是香港少數同時持有現代鋼琴演奏學士學位及古典音樂碩士的音樂人,在港奠定了古典及流行鋼琴的基礎後遠赴美國荷李活深造現代音樂。在美國留學時期曾跟隨多位著名鋼琴手(包括:Russell Ferrante、Alberto Salas、Mamiko Kitaura 等)學習演奏及編寫不同風格的現代音樂(Latin、Jazz、Pop Ballad、Rock、Funk、Blues、Soul、R&B、Fusion、Film Music),並同時修讀電影配樂。

Samson 多年來演出經驗豐富,在美國留學期間曾在電視台選秀節目為歌手作鋼琴伴奏,並於校內外的各種活動中擔任鋼琴及鍵琴手;在港時亦曾於香港會議展覽中心、香港太空館、各區文化中心及表演場地出任爵士樂隊、搖滾樂隊、管弦樂器、敲擊樂團、個人聲樂演唱、婚禮的鋼琴及鍵琴伴奏,更曾於 Live House 中擔任駐場鍵琴手,歷年來參與演出達數百場。

除了主樂器,Samson 也曾在多個音樂劇及樂團擔任爵士鼓手、和音、舞台副總監及音樂總監。在音樂創作上,Samson 曾為獨立音樂人和不同機構進行編曲及監製,也曾為音樂劇編曲,並曾參與泰迪羅賓電影《八步半喜怒哀樂》和 Giormani 廣告的配樂,也曾為樂隊 Supper Moment 的演唱會間場短片進行配樂。

Samson 有逾 10 年教學經驗,曾在大型連鎖琴行任教,擅長教授即興流行/爵士鋼琴,教學對象主要為成人及青少年,程度由初學至音樂系畢業生,授課時致力於啟發學生在音樂上的創意及自由度,將樂理和樂曲分析融入演奏中,在學習不同樂曲的同時,更會一步步引導學生去找出屬於他們自己的聲音和演奏風格,讓他們可以在鋼琴上自由、隨性地表達自我。

另外,有別於坊間流行鋼琴速成課程將彈奏過份簡化及 Pattern 化,Samson 重視每首歌的獨特性及細節,並擅於將歐美前衛時髦的現代鋼琴風格融入廣東流行曲當中。無論是初學者想直接學習時尚的流行曲彈奏手法,或者已彈奏流行曲多年但覺得自己的即興手法重重覆覆不知如何突破,Samson 都很樂意將他所知的在課堂上一一分享,並竭力幫助學生成為更好、更有個性的現代鋼琴手。

*流行鋼琴伴奏課程使用極高還原度的樂譜,令學生真正了解專業樂手如何流暢並富有音樂性地處理樂曲的起承轉合。
