Students received close tutoring on jazz musicianship in small workshops, experienced performing with jazz professionals in front of an audience, and spent ‘down time’ with the professional artists learning about touring and the music business. Participating high school band directors filled out a survey rating various elements of the jazz residency/festival from one to 10. They were also asked to include feedback from their students. Questions involved amount of workshop time, rehearsal time, and quality of the guest musicians. All ratings across the board were eight to ten. 2: Students from area high schools and WSU worked closely with professional jazz musicians from New York, and performed with them in public concerts. Students auditioned for the professional musicians and then worked in workshops on various jazz techniques. Band directors from regional high schools participated with their students and filled out surveys.
