Re: “Birdland Jazzista Social Club Hopes to Establish an Oakland Music District

As a parent of a jazz student who has benefitted immensely from Mike's wide vision and love of community, I can say that Birdland has become an extraordinary & essential stop along the Bay Area Jazz Education Continuum. High School students, Jazzbos in training, bitten by the jazz bug, compete for precious few spots in the conglomerate All-Star Bands at SFJAZZ, the Studio Bands at the California Jazz Conservatory (formerly, the Jazzschool, in the Berkeley theater district) and elsewhere, still need a place to play and a place to listen, talk and grow beyond the group. Many of these players also write music and it is indispensable to them to be able to showcase their work in this under-21 environment. These kids are the NEXT GENERATION! Mike is their adoptive cool-father-figure and his one-of-a-kind bird houses, their metaphorical homes!

Re: “Birdland Jazzista Social Club Hopes to Establish an Oakland Music District

Inspired by this article and by Simma Lieberman's intriguing post, I've added an article about Birdland to my blog about JAZZ EDUCATION in THE BAY AREA, called THE LEAD SHEET SF ~ MUSIC & THE BRAIN. *** TheLeadSheetSF.blogspot.com *** features Educator and Student Interviews, comparing answers to the same 4 and 5 questions, respectively. Also, explore articles about the Brain & Learning Music, Descriptions of Specialty Jazz Education Programs in the Bay Area, Parenting a Jazz Student, Applying to Music College, Music & Education Book Reviews and Show Reviews.
