Join the Prince Georges Cultural Arts Foundation for a Master Class and Workshop dedicated to promoiting music and music education..

Conducted by bassist Cedric A. Napoleon, for more than five decades, he has dedicated his life to engaging in a conversation with and about m,usic. As a founding member of the influential jazz ensemble Pieces of A Dream, Cedric has performed at major venues all over the world. Once the principal bassist for Grover Washington, Jr., Cedric has recorded for Elektra, Manhattan and Blue Note Records, and over the course of his career has collaborated with music legends including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Patti LaBelle, Stevie Wonder and Teddy Pendergrass.

It has been Cedric's mission over the last 3 years to keep all genre's of live music in the ears of our listeners. The industry has changed so much with the introduction of computerized instruments, and the music and arts programs being removed from schools. Cedric has worked with the PHL LIVE project in Philadelphia PA and the historic Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts.

Cedric's program currently has over 20 students that they teach music history, theory, and practical lessons. many of their students have been accepted to colleges and The Berklee School of Music Summer Program,
