History:

All Ears was designed by veteran educators Dr. Arthur Falbush and Keith Pray. With 16 years of collaborating on many educational programs and with over 50 years of combined teaching experience, All Ears is an evolution of the original method of learning jazz (by ear). Jazz musicians since the earliest days of the music learned to play by imitating other musicians. All Ears takes this concept into an educational environment and provides participants the opportunity to learn how to improve their jazz playing while being supervised by experienced jazz musicians and veteran teachers.

Faculty: Led by educators Keith Pray and Arthur Falbush along with other leading educators and performers from the region.
