Hi everyone. I know this is probably out of the question. But, here goes anyway. My son attends a high school for the gifted in virginia. He wants to be a musician. He plays alto sax, clarinet, guitar, mandoline, piano, tenor sax,etc. (All of that and an asthmatic!) He loves jazz and adores Wynton Marsalis. His school requires all graduating seniors to put together a mentorship program for themselves. Whereby, they must spend a certain amount of time with someone in the industry they wish to aspire to. It can be a short while or an actual working program. He wishes to ask Wynton if he could do this with him. Like I said, I’m certain Wynton is way to busy for this. But, I was wondering if anyone knows who to e-mail or contact to find out if this is at all feasible. You never know.

Here’s the email that was given to me on a prior post. That is the one used to forward all mesages and questions to. Good Luck to you and your son.
Contact Jazz at Lincoln Center 212-258-9800, ask to speak with Nyala Wright in the Education Department, she should be able to help you out….
