From 2006-2011, he toured with the Tony Award-winning show, Jersey Boys. Ted is a passionate jazz educator and served as Jazz House Kids, Director of Music from 2012-2015.  He currently serves as the Jazz House Kids, Director of Cultural Programming, as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center, MSJA Band Director.  He has led master classes and cultural exchange programs in schools across the US as well as internationally.   On such recordings as 2011’s New Tricks, Alternate Side and his 2017 solo release, Gratified Never Satisfied, Chubb has demonstrated an innate ability to adapt his knowledge, talent and worldliness to every aspect of his art and work.  “I am in a phase in my life where I am trying to connect with and develop relationships through the music around the globe, anywhere there are people that can benefit from the positive and universal power of the music. In a time where so much of the world is trying to divide us from one another, I believe this is of the highest importance.”
