TILLERY is pleased to visit the Jazzschool in San Francisco this fall!  The Jazzschool is an innovative nonprofit organization dedicated to the study and performance of jazz — America’s indigenous art form —and related styles of music from around the world. Founded in 1997, the Jazzschool is located in the historic Kress Building at Shattuck and Addison, in the heart of the Downtown Berkeley Arts District. The Jazzschool is part of a vibrant East Bay arts community that includes the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Aurora Theatre, East Bay Media Center and renowned Cal Performances at the University of California. Hailed as one of the nation’s most comprehensive centers for jazz studies, the Jazzschool offers instrumentalists and vocalists of all ages and skill levels a broad spectrum of performance ensembles, lectures, workshops and private instruction. Courses are designed for the professional musician, the serious student and the jazz aficionado seeking personal enrichment.

LOS ANGELES, CA:     Tuesday, September 24th, 2013  (Masterclass)

We are really excited to partner up with Gretchen’s sister Heather Parlato and the space that she helps to program called ‘Betalevel’.  This hip ‘rough and tumble’ venue is described as ‘part studio, part club, part stage, and part screen;  Betalevel is located in a basement in Chinatown, Los Angeles, and plays host to various media events such as screenings, performances, classes, lectures, debates, dances, readings, and tournaments. Its members are artists, programmers, writers, musicians, designers, agit-propers, filmmakers, and reverse-engineers.’

It’s best to locate the space by clicking on the link to ‘directions’ below – as the door is somewhat hidden behind Hill Street. Don’t worry. We’ll give you a number to call after you register just in case (“Don’t worry, Jake. It’s Chinatown.” I’ve always wanted to use that somewhere) – so join us for an evening masterclass session!
