The sixth annual Jazz Education Network Conference will be from January 7th-10th 2015 in San Diego, California. The organizers have named Herbie Hancock as the Keynote Speaker at the conference, where he will also be made a “LeJENd of Jazz Education Honoree” (surely they need a better title!). Here’s the Conference Line-Up.
The Network is also conducting a survey to ascertain and identify what researchers see as the most important issues currently affecting jazz. Take the survey HERE
The JEN emerged in 2008 from the ashes of the long-lived International Association of Jazz Educators. It is clearly on a growth path. The story of its resurgence in the past six years is told HERE.
