International Association of Schools of Jazz

International Association of Schools of Jazz

the worldwide organization for jazz, jazz education and jazz research (this site is under reconstruction and might be temporary out of order; if so come back later)

Most of my current projects involve fellow musicians that are part of the IASJ world, so I’m very happy to belong to this big jazz family.
