jariHi, I am Jari Perkiömäki from Finland. I am a saxophone player and jazz music teacher working currently as the Rector of the University of the Arts Helsinki. I have been an IASJ board member since 2006. Furthermore, I was elected as IASJ chairman in 2012 and again in 2016. The IASJ for me is the worldwide network in jazz and jazz education that connects all styles and everybody in jazz. I perform with a couple of my groups, and at times I play in other people's groups as well.

I have also collaborated in making web-based music theory material combining classical and jazz theory. To companies and businesses of various sorts, I do management trainings using jazz improvisation as a metaphor.
