Welcome To Our New Website!
Welcome to our brand new CSUN JAZZ website … born May 15, 2013! We’d like to thank Gary Pratt, John Daversa, Matt Harris and Ricky Chavez for their input and hard work in putting this thang together. Also, none of this could be possible without the tireless effort of Erick Maynard who designed and constructed this site.
Well, enough about the site…. We have some new faculty members at CSUN that we are so excited about. They are all great players and teachers!! Gene Coy, Drums, Katisse Buckingham, Saxes and Flutes, Jamie Rosen, Guitar, Josh Nelson, Piano, Barb Catlin Trio Class, and Wayne Bergeron, trumpet.
Some quick news: The Jazz A Band is currently recording a new CD of student compositions and arrangements. Our combos received First and Second places at the 2013 Monterey Next Generation Festival, and First and Third place at the 2013 Reno Jazz Festival.
Stay tuned there’s more to come!
