Nathan Childers Masterclass Pictures:  We had an amazing day with NYC Jazz Artist Nathan Childers.  He coached and played with our Honors Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Honors Jazz Ensemble, Songwriting Class, and even a jazz cellist. Mr. Childers is an endorsed artist by the Rico and Yamaha corporations.   Topics included: Warm-ups and long tones, breathing, phrasing, improvisation, reed and instrument care, and life in the music industry.  Mr Childers stated,"I am so impressed with your new school - what an incredible environment to learn in". He was also very impressed with the playing level in our music program and its many course offerings.  We hope to have him back again soon.  He is a true artist that instills his love and passion of music with all groups that he works with.  If you are ever in NYC, stop by the famous jazz club "Birdland" to see if he is playing that night. This masterclass day was made possible with a grant from CAPA and the Yamaha Corporation.  Thank You!!
