Jazz Pedagogy

"I really enjoyed your "Dear Jazzy" column in the July 2008 ITA Journal. I have always had a challenge with really appreciating jazz, despite lots of jazz performance in high school and college. (I consider myself more of a classical player/listener.) However, your well-written article made me quite excited to get back to playing and listening to good music in all genres. I am currently in Iraq; but when I get home, I look forward to pulling out my horn! Clear, concise, and well-written. Thanks for inspiring writing!"
Eric Schneider
, Camp Taji (Baghdad), Iraq

"Congrats on the nice article in the ITA Journal. I think it did well to represent both 'sides' and came off very positively. Thanks for including me."
John Fedchock
, Trombonist, Composer, Bandleader

"Finally had a chance to read the article. Well done!"
Ed Neumeister
, Trombonist, Composer, Bandleader

"Antonio García's excellent article Thematic Dissonance offers several very basic approaches to melodic chromaticism."
David Liebman
, Saxophonist, Composer, Bandleader
Founder, International Association of Schools of Jazz

"Thank you for your MENC Music Educators Journal article, 'Fine-Tuning Your Ensemble's Jazz Style.' You covered so many basic problems and mentioned so many artists' styles."
Karl Glenn, then-President, MENC

"Hopefully, your 'Fine-Tuning' article will be widely read. I hope, too, that it will be read by those outside of the jazz education area. A great deal of what you had to say is applicable to all performing organizations. Particularly impressive to me were your comments about listening and tuning."
John Kinnison, then-Executive Director,
Illinois Music Educators Association

Laura Johnson

Music Business

"I am writing on behalf of Andrew Surmani, Vice-President of Marketing for Alfred Publishing, to thank you for your recent article on Copyright Law in the November issue of Band and Orchestra magazine. It is wonderful to see the industry as a whole being proactive in educating the public on this matter."
Dana M. Crooks, Executive Administrator of Alfred Publishing

Music Advocacy

"Your article about New Orleans is breathtaking, heartbreaking and hope-making. So deep. I have a mailing list of friends who are specifically concerned with helping NOLA. Do you have an electronic version of it and if so, would you mind sending it to me so I can share it?"
Kitty Margolis
, Jazz Vocalist

"We encourage you to call this article ["Music Education: A Necessity"] to the attention of your school board and superintendent. Use it as positive reinforcement for your program's supporters—and as a constructive argument engaging those who would downsize or eliminate your program."
IMEA Illinois Music Educator

"Is music part of your schools' curriculum? After you read the evidence assembled by Antonio García in 'Music Education: A Necessity' on page 12 of this issue, you may be tempted to take up an instrument yourself."
Illinois Association of School Boards Journal

"I just got my copy of the May-June issue of the Illinois Association of School Boards Journal. What a great service you have done for music education in your wonderful cover article. I'm going to ask for 25 copies so that every member of the IMEA Board of Directors can have one. Thanks for this tremendous contribution to our advocacy efforts!"
Randy Kummer, Executive Director,
Illinois Association of Music Educators

"['CEOs Advocate...'] shows the extent of support we have for music education
from the corporate community."
