By November, the Jazz House runs like a well-oiled machine, with students fully engaged in their busy routines. We’re so proud of all our students, because committing to music takes lots of tenacity and passion… And setting aside some time everyday to practice and rehearse takes discipline!
At Jazz House Kids, our amazing teaching artists inspire and cultivate our students’ growing talents on a daily basis, and we’re also thrilled when we get surprise visits from incredible musicians that can attest to the power of perseverance and dedication! Recently, wonder drummer Jerome Jennings came along with Jazz House Kids Artistic Director Christian McBride, and hung out with the kids and Big Band director Julius Tolentino! Here was music and mentoring at its finest, with one of the most sought-after drummers in the Tri-State area and beyond!
