January 2020 Newsletter

My plans for the start of the new year – upcoming performances, new video, sheet music, and more!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful celebration surrounded by family, friends, amazing music, and delicious food.

One of my most important New Years Resolutions is to get back into sending out my monthly newsletters and more frequent social media posts. I became very caught up in my first semester of my graduate studies, working as many as six jobs at one time, and countless other commitments. But I am ready to regain focus and clarity!

I am making big plans for this year – new music, more gigs, and more sharing my jazz research and musings on my blog.

So many exciting things happened in the final stretch of 2019. I finished my first semester at New England Conservatory with honors. I was involved in many wonderful performances with the NEC Jazz Orchestra with guest artists including Alan Pasqua, Antonio Sanchez, Carl Atkins, Luciana Souza, George Schuller, and Ran Blake. I met a lot of incredible people, had countless special musical experiences, and settled into my jobs. I have also enjoyed teaching one day a week at a Boston Public School through NEC’s Community Performances and Partnerships department.

I am also excited to share that Jazzhers is being officially incorporating as a non-profit with the mission of creating community for middle and high school girls who play jazz in the Boston area. We had a very special masterclass with Grammy nominated saxophonist Tia Fuller and look forward to offering more great programs this spring.

I’m sorry it has been a while since you last heard from me. I will resolve to do better in 2020!

Have a lovely rest of the weekend,
Sam
