Our teachers are established veteran and up and coming jazz educators based in Southern California who have been selected after rigorous search process. From time to time, we also work with exceptionally skilled and in-demand colleagues in the area and from across the United States through the Jazz Educator Partnership program in order to fill any needs based on demand. We are very proud to be able to offer such a variety of expertise, experience, and wisdom from our teachers and hope that our students can also benefit from this, too!
We are fusing the liberating power of improvisation rooted in the tradition of American jazz with the sensibility to the wisdom of Dr. Shin'ichi Suzuki's philosophy of "every child can play music" thus creating a new landscape in community music education that allows kids, youth, and adults to experience the creative process at any age and level.
