TVDSB Honour Jazz Band
London Area All-Star High School Jazz Ensemble
I am the founder and artistic director of the TVDSB Honour Jazz Band.
The TVDSB HJB is made up of senior high school students from the Thames Valley District School Board. I usually average 10 or more schools being involved within the 17-18 players.
We rehearse every two weeks and regularly have clinicians come work with the students.
Over the years, we have had financial help to bring in talented musicians to work with the students. Long & McQuade and Yamaha Canada sponsored: 2011 - Dave Dunlop, 2012 - David Braid, 2014 - Al Kay, 2015 Tara Davidson, 2016 Terry Promane, 2017 Christian Overton.
In 2017, Western University helped us bring in Reggie Thomas.
