Playbook In-Person: Dodson Middle School

As a part of our Playbook In-Person series, the mentors made their way to California to spread #joyfuljazz to the students of Dodson Middle School! 

With a two-day residency, the mentors taught our staple building blocks to get them swinging with a better understanding of history and jazz. This included clinics, jam sessions, and much more. 

Here is a video of their culminating concert, in which they were joined by a local saxophonist. 


Take a listen to this young trumpet player, who had never soloed before!


At the end of their time with Dodson, Playbook Founder and CEO Sammy Miller was presented with an award for his dedication to joyful jazz and to encouraging the students of Dodson!
