“In conjunction with the Fishers High School Band Boosters, we were thrilled to help bring this clinic to FHS,” says Tim Dawson, Director of School Sales for Paige’s Music.
Students from area schools were also invited to attend. “It was tremendously worthwhile and very educational,” says attendee Brian Brosmer. “The encouragement of expression through music was depicted through the very creative skills of Jeff and Roy.”
FHS Director of Bands Charles Kunz attended North Texas University with Jeff, so the two have been friends for years.
“When Jeff works as a clinician, he does more than just demonstrate the masterful skills for which he has been recognized by the media and his many fans; simply put, he inspires….Many of our students told me that working with Jeff has changed their lives and how they approach music,” says Caleb Chapman, President of Caleb Chapman Music, Director of Crescent Super Band and Board member of the Jazz Education Network (JEN).
Roy’s talents are unique. He comes from a music family and won his first GRAMMY while performing with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. His unique style of jazz fusion is simply amazing. Listening to how he applies mathematics to his compositions is sheer brilliance.
