As almost everything moves online, jazz educators (many of whom are also performers) are tasked with taking instruction into the virtual world. This panel—moderated by saxophonist and educator Kate Olson—will discuss the experiences of multiple educators—including Leanna Keith and Dmitri Matheny—as they navigate issues surrounding equitable access to education, workarounds for not being able to play together, and how the demands of teaching music online have changed throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
