Here is  a great webinar on Music Licensing from Real Industry Talk.

Music Licensing 101.

This is a group that we are proud to share the “Teen Jazz” name with – the “Teen Jazz Project” is a group of musicians in grades 9-12 in the Triple Cities area performing together.

The group gives young musicians the opportunity to meet, perform and learn to play jazz for only $5 per session.

You can hear live recordings of the group and find out more information at the Teen Jazz Project Website.
