 OPEN EAR INSTITUTECanon-Academy-of-Performing-Arts

"While the Prescott Jazz Society (PJAZZ) programs for young people have always been of great benefit, within the current economic crisis for schools & decline of funding for music programs, the Open Ear Institute has become a real lifeline for young people who want to play music & have an interest in the music business. The workshops offer personal & professional tutoring that benefit all young people because the emphasis is on issues such as time management, diverse cultural knowledge, people skills, and above all . . respect for others."
