In August, our jazz band performed for an appreciation dinner for 250 American former POW veterans. The Perot Companies in Dallas, TX hosted this annual event on Thursday, August 16, 2018. The gathering displayed appreciation for the service of former POWs who served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. While the Veterans toured the museum, our jazz band played jazz standards and songs of the 1950s and 1960s.

In November, I had the pleasure to serve as the clinician for the 2017-2018 Region X All-Region Jazz Band I in Orange, TX. This enthusiastic, auditioned group of high school jazz musicians assembled a concert of challenging big band music in only two rehearsals. I also had the privilege to perform a tune with Louisiana jazz educator and bassist Jay Ecker, who directed Band II. Thanks to organizer Jose Ochoa for his hard work in organizing this event!

Vandoren Regional Artist Justin Pierce

As long as I have played music, I have always enjoyed performing on Vandoren reeds on both saxophone and clarinet. Their consistency, quality, and beautiful tone make them a natural recommendation for students and professionals. For these reasons, I am thrilled to partner with DANSR, Inc. as a Vandoren Regional Artist, presenting clinics and masterclasses at schools across the region. Music teachers who would like to host a free Vandoren masterclass for your saxophones, clarinets, or jazz band may fill out the Contact Form. Please include your name, school name, possible clinic dates/times, and desired topics (ex. articulation, reed selection, all-state masterclass, jazz improvisation). Looking forward to visiting your school soon!
