This online  discussion will focus on the latter, as our panelists consider strategies and marketing efforts to improve the welcome of all genders at jazz activities and events.  Hear what our panel of experts has to say and post your own questions and comments for the panel at this open-to-all Google Hangout.

Does the world of jazz scholarship respect and employ the work of jazz journalists, and do jazz journalists gain from relations with the academy? Are the worlds of jazz education and jazz information-dissemination parallel or do they intersect? What values and techniques do both media-makers and teachers hold dear, or need to acquire? Are there ways to build or strengthen bonds, or are these two sectors of the jazz ecology forever separate, equal or not? 


Educators Dr. Monika Herzig and Dr. Larry Ridley, ph.d. student and former jazz writer for the Newark Star Ledger Alex H. Rodriguez, and jazz writer/broadcaster/adjunct faculty at University of Illinois Chicago and Northwestern University Neil Tesser talk about their experiences in the field, moderated by Howard Mandel, JJA president and 28-year adjunct professor at New York University.

Frank Alkyer (l), publisher of DownBeat magazine, and Michael Ricci (r), founder of AllABoutJazz.com, AllAboutJazz magazine and JazzNearYou, join JJA President Howard Mandel to discuss jazz in print and online as they produce it now, and provide their perspectives on trends, developments and innovations in jazz publishing.  Is the traditional monthly, a  paper magazine, delivered to subscribers via snail mail or purchased at news stands, a sustainable model into the future? Can web-based platforms gain enough income from advertising and/or subscriptions to pay contributors? How has technology changed collection and dissemination of information about jazz? Can jazz journalism be a profession, or will it become more of a hobby? Bring your own questions and comments for our panelists, but please post them at http://goo.gl/jRExfW, not here.

Creative new online publications are exploring new ways  to bring jazz news and information to fans and open new opportunities for jazz journalists.  While some print magazines have moved online slowly and reluctantly, fearing a loss of readers and revenues, these new publications have eagerly embraced the web and are boldly using video, audio and social media as they work to build new audiences for themselves– and for jazz.
In this online webinar/Google Hangout, our expert panel of online  jazz publishers and editors-- Danilo Navas of Latin Jazz Network, Anthony Dean-Harris of NextBop.com and Gio Russonello of Capitalbop.com  will share experiences and talk about the challenges and rewards of building a jazz publication online. They’ll explain what they have to offer readers, including those who do not count themselves as jazz fans yet, and give tips to jazz media makers who want to contribute to their publications.

Because jazz is founded on interactive collective improvisation, it's often said that jazz embodies democratic principles. It also exemplifies such values as virtuosity and disciplined life-long practice. Jazz education can be used to transmit such principles and positive values to students of all ages, whether they are musicians or not.

Our expert panel of jazz educators will share experiences and provide suggestions of use to anyone who loves jazz and wants to pass its lessons and rich heritage to our next generation.
PANELISTS: Dr. Wesley J. Watkins, IV,  the Founder of The Jazz & Democracy Project®.  Todd Stoll is vice president for education of Jazz at Lincoln Center,Sharon Burch is an elementary music teacher and clinician who chairs the international Jazz Education Network Education Committee and  serves as an elementary education consultant for Jazz At Lincoln Center.
