Teaching on Whidbey Island

Since the end of July, I've been teaching out on Whidbey Island at Langley Middle School, thanks to music educator Chris Harshman. Every other Friday, Steve Korn, Mark Taylor and I head up on the ferry to teach private lessons on our respective instruments. In the fall, we will be moving to the high school and injecting older students to the mix. SO -- if you know any junior high or high school students on Whidbey Island interested in jazz-based instrument lessons, be sure to let them know there is now a high-caliber option available for them.
