2020 has brought about the cancellation of weddings, events, and parties due to COVID-19. Justin Pierce’s Dallas Jazz Band continues to perform for socially-distanced gatherings around the metroplex in Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding communities. We have worked with our existing clients to reschedule dates and are accepting new bookings for Fall and Winter 2020.

Do you have a holiday party where the ambiance of a jazz trio might fit the bill? Maybe a more intimate event with a solo saxophonist?

Contact us today to discuss your event! Our jazz band is committed to providing safe, fun entertainment for your guests.

TMEA/OkMEA Jazz Improvisation Masterclass

calendarMonday, 13 July

When I post the TMEA and OKMEA saxophone etudes every year, quite a few students comment and ask for tips on the improvisation etudes. This year, I wanted to dedicate a special masterclass to this. Join me Thursday night and learn the keys to practicing and improvising over F Blues, Autumn Leaves, ii-V-I vocabulary, and more.

This will cover F blues (TX/OK) and Autumn Leaves (TX), two common songs/progressions that all jazz musicians should know.

Register today at In Harmony Lessons.

Vandoren Regional Artist Justin Pierce

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!

Hi Mr. Pierce !
I’m a high school student from Houston, TX wondering if you could give me some practicing tips on the Jazz Etudes for Region and All-State band. By practicing I mean how to practice the piece and divide by chunks and how slow to go. I’ve always wanted to do region band, but I never put in the practice required, but this year I think I’m going to put myself out there and try my best. BTW, I really like your tone on your YouTube videos! I play on a Meyer 5L and play on Rico jazz select. Do you think I should try some Javas (like size 2 1/2).

Debbie Lacher

Please call me about hiring you to play at an event. Thank you for calling me.
