I am the Founder and Executive director of the Inner City Jazz Foundation.
The Mission of the Inner City Jazz Foundation is to promote jazz music and culture to inner city and underprivileged communities. As part of that mission, the Inner City Jazz Foundation (ICJF) initiates jazz educational programs, as well as provides opportunities and incentives for members of inner city and underprivileged communities to develop a heightened appreciation and understanding of jazz music, history and culture.
Many of ICJF’s programs target school- aged students who would otherwise (due to school budget restrictions, teacher shortages, and socio-economic conditions) have limited access to jazz educational opportunities and experiences.
In keeping with its mission, ICJF provides jazz scholarships and awards for exceptional and talented students and performers; promotes community jazz festivals, concerts and competitions; presents seminars and workshops on jazz related issues; and works in cooperation with other national and international organizations and institutions whose purpose is the furtherance and preservation of jazz.
I am offering private instruction in Jazz Improvisation. Students are expected to have a minimum proficiency on their particular instruments as well as a basic knowledge of music theory (i.e. scales, chords, etc.)
The student rate is $40.00 Per Lesson
The adult rate is $50.00 Per Lesson

Jazz Improvisation Lessons!
The Prince George's County Jazz Youth Orchestra
The Inner City Jazz Foundation (ICJF) is currently developing The Prince George’s County Jazz Youth Orchestra. ICJF's program is intended to give young musicians the opportunity to develop and gain practical experience in jazz performance through participation in a jazz ensemble. Students in elementary, middle and high-school have the opportunity to interpret and perform original and standard jazz arrangements and compositions by renowned jazz artists, composers and arrangers. They learn about the nuances that go into giving a successful jazz performance. The program instills in participating students, a heightened appreciation and respect for jazz music through guided study and practice. Additionally, ICJF plans to bring in professional jazz artists and educators to give workshops and clinics, as well as to help students with jazz interpretation, improvisational concepts, ear training, sight reading and more. They will also be on hand to provide encouragement for the students as well as to help prepare them for upcoming performances. Through the program, students will be encouraged to continually develop on their respective instruments. The importance of taking private lessons will be stressed in order to maintain high standards of performance excellence. More importantly, it is the goal of ICJF to develop life skills in participating students. Students will be expected to exhibit excellence through self discipline, self respect, and respect for others, cooperation and through developing a strong work ethic. Students meet each week for two hours to rehearse. There is no charge to the student for participation. However, a minimum amount of musical proficiency is expected as well as the ability to sight read. Students are expected to have their own instruments. A piano/keyboard and drum set is provided for rehearsals.
Parental support is encouraged and welcomed!
