Teaching Mingus

We are pleased to announce partnerships with Greater New York City area institutions to expand the presence of Mingus in graduate and undergraduate curriculum!  Working with Manhattan School of Music, Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, City College of New York, retired Chair of Jazz Composition at Berklee College Professor Ken Pullig, Professor Conrad Herwig, saxophonist Alex Foster, and other members of the Mingus Bands, our goal is to broaden the understanding and appreciation for Mingus music through workshops, classes and lectures, as well as encourage young musicians to explore his rich legacy.
