The Jazzschool in Berkeley is again pleased to offer an amazing summer program for advanced high school jazz musicians: The Summer High School Intensive, directed by Dr. Michael Zilber. A great situation where students work with some of the very best Bay Area musicians in a one-to-one teacher-to-student ratio.
Auditions are coming up at the end of April, please contact me (Erik Jakobsen) if you are interested.
