This is an amazing neighborhood music school, with world-class teachers and ambitious programs. I attended a jazz clinic yesterday that was led by tuba virtuoso, educator, and luminary Bob Stewart teaching kids improvisation techniques on their instruments; this is amazing and if more people were exposed to stuff like this, the world would be a better place.
