I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Game Symphony Workshop. This creative music experience helps formally trained musicians get off the page through Soundpainting, musical adaptations of theater games, and creative chamber music.

Jazz Pilgrimage to Davenport

POSTED ON April 02, 2016   |   Post A Comment

I’m visiting friends and family in the Midwest this week, and I paid a visit to the childhood home of the great Bix Beiderbecke in Davenport, Iowa.

Bix’s music was magical, and his life was cut tragically short when he drank himself to death at age 28. He is one of my favorite jazz artists, and I half-jokingly say I trace my lineage back to Bix: a white musician growing up outside a major city who learned to play jazz by listening to recordings.

New JazzClubsNW Improv Lab

POSTED ON October 03, 2015   |   Post A Comment

I had a blast directing the inaugural JazzClubsNW Improv Lab at Boxley’s. I led a group of 14 middle school students through game pieces, conducted improvisations, and riff blues tunes.

JazzClubsNW is new non-profit organization dedicated to bringing educational programs and world-class artists to venues throughout the Northwest. It’s an expansion of Boxley’s, the member-supported venue in North Bend, WA. JazzClubsNW just launched venues and programs in Bellingham and Tacoma. Look for more Improv Lab classes in the future!
