Vancouver Community College masterclass

On March 22, 2024, I gave a two-hour masterclass for music students at Vancouver Community College (VCC).

Revolving around Journeys to the Bandstand, the class involved talking about the book, reading excerpts, playing music that I wrote about, and asking the students questions about both the excerpts and music. The questions sparked discussion.

A number of musicians I interviewed for the book either attended VCC or teach in the college’s Music program, including Hugh Fraser, Sharon Minemoto, Bernie Arai, John Korsrud, and David Blake.

Thank you to Emily Logan, Sharon, and Bernie for making my participation in the masterclass possible.
