About this Event

DC Jazz Festival Education Presents: Jazzin' AfterSchool Master Class - Piano As A Secondary Instrument with Janelle Gill

DC Jazz Festival Education's "Piano As A Secondary Instrument" Master Class is open to young musicians in grades 6-12. Jazzin' AfterSchool teaches jazz history and instrumental instruction in fun and engaging ways. This master class conducted by pianist Janelle Gill offers specific recommendations to inspire young people to get “jazzed” about the study of the piano and its relationship to their primary instrument. Instrumentalists and vocalists are encouraged to attend.

ABOUT THE TEACHING ARTIST: Janelle Gill, native Washingtonian, began her musical path at the age of 5 when, aspiring to a career as a concert pianist, she began taking piano lessons based on the popular Suzuki method of piano instruction. As a middle school student, Janelle was introduced to jazz by Delfeayo Marsalis during a workshop he performed at her school. She continued her studies at the famed Duke Ellington School of the Arts under the guidance of saxophonist Davey Yarborough and Howard University under the tutelage of Dr. Raymond Jackson and Charles Covington. Janelle has performed with Oliver Lake, The Blackbyrds, Delfeayo Marsalis, David Murray and many local artists such as Marshall Keys, Kenny Rittenhouse, and Nasar Abadey. Currently Janelle teaches piano and is working on her debut recording.
