We Are Back!!!

Yonkers Strong!

I am happy to share some pictures from our first "Socially" distant small group jazz ensemble.

I am incredibly grateful for the support of all our students and their families.  We continue to do virtual classes as well for those that are more comfortable on-line but it is wonderful to be back  to "in person" classes.
Our director Joey Berkley and my husband Paul spent last weekend installing fans in all our windows that effectively circulate and bring in fresh air every 10-15 minutes.  We are limiting class sizes to 6, and currently they range from as few as 2 people up to 6.
Over the last few months, we have given private lessons to all our students,  and then moved to small groups of 2-4.  It has been incredibly rewarding to see all our students dig in and do their best and improve during this time.
Very grateful to be back, and looking forward to sharing video and more as we move forward.
Thanks for everyone's support!! Stay TUNED!
Liz Sander
                  

Still Operating...

For the last 2 months, we’ve been operating free of charge and converted our band rehearsals into private lessons for each of our students.  Although our director is exhausted, it has been a very gratifying time, to watch how hard our students have worked and grown.  When all is said and done, we plan on hitting the ground running.

In particular , we will remember all our students that are graduating this year, and when the time is appropriate the Center will celebrate all of them.

I’m looking forward to the coming months as we continue to plan and have some new things (and surprises) in store things in store – so stay tuned.


Operating Remotely Until April 3rd

Our aim here at the Center is to continue to provide our community with wonderful Jazz performances as well as maintaining a healthy and safe environment for our students and staff. With that being said, we will be operating remotely until April 3rd. Our wonderful director, Joey Berkley, and our owners Liz and Paul are working tirelessly to develop online curricula and activities to keep our students engaged and learning! We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe, our prayer go out to you all in these trying times. The school has always been about giving back in gratitude for what we've been given.
