AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
I really need your help in finding internships for teaching and performing with the Jazz Ensemble at Jazz Workshop, Inc.
I need interns for the following positions:
Upright/Electric Bass- Teach upright and electric bass and play with the Jazz Ensemble
Violins/Violas- Teach violin and viola classes.
Also, we would like to have a big band and are in need of trumpets and trombones.
I have always been an avid supporter of many jazz musicians on this site, and I would appreciate it if yinz all could give me support in the following ways:
* Help me with referrals for all of the above positions
* Come out and play with the JWS Jazz Ensemble and hang around and take lessons at our JWS School of Music (I have space available for trumpet and trombone students. Also, Tony Campbell is available to teach woodwind students too. And if you can read jazz charts well, yinz can come and play with Tony and me.).
* You never know who may show up at the JWS School of Music- During the last couple years Joe Harris and Nelson Harrison have stopped by, and Floyd King from Ray Charles' Band just recently came and played with the JWS Jazz Ensemble.
Also, Thank You to All The Jazz Musicians Who Have Let Me Sit In With Them And All The Gigs I Played With You All- It's an honor that you have let me be a part of your jam sessions along with all the gigs that we played together on.
And Finally, Thanks for publicly acknowledging me as Artistic Director of Jazz Workshop, Inc..
