Happy Easter Week!

This last week we reached over 110 articles on Teen Jazz since August 2012. I’m really excited about the progress the site is making, all of the fabulous guest posts we’ve had on the site and I’m grateful to all the musicians who have taken the time to do interviews with us and share a little bit about what they do.

But now I’d like to include you even more.

I’m always looking for great ideas to include on the website, but there are so many different things to cover it’s hard to filter through all the different options.

So I’m asking for your help.

What would you like to see on Teen Jazz? What questions do you have about the music industry and what would you like to learn about?

If you don’t mind sharing some of your questions and ideas, I’d love to hear them. So feel free to reply to this email with them.

And, of course, if you are interested in contributing an article to Teen Jazz, I’d love to go over the possibility with you.

I can’t wait to read your suggestions and I appreciate all of your help and support.



Teen Jazz features the profiles of up and coming musicians, giving them a place to network and promote their music. We’ve recently featured several great young artists on Teen Jazz including Sean Winter who has also become a contributor.

We love helping young musicians spread the word about their music. Check out some of the talented young artists on Teen Jazz:

This week has been exciting here at Teen Jazz – we’ve launched our very first Podcast! Teen Jazz Radio has been around for over a year now, but we initially featured music on youtube. Inspired by Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income, we decided to switch mediums and release Teen Jazz Radio features as a podcast as opposed to a youtube video (but we have a youtube version of the podcast as well).

You can watch or listen to our first episode through any of the channels below:

This is a really great article. Stop saying “if” and start being proactive.

Hey everyone,

On January 8, 2013 we added the last of our archive articles back on to Teen Jazz. This is the first time that every article has been up on the site since it went through a series of redesigns, so needless to say, we are quite excited!

Since the each of the archive articles are now up, we’ll be moving towards a less frequent posting scheduling. New articles will be added twice a week rather than every other day with the exception of Teen Jazz Artists pages which will be added on an “as received” basis.

Thank you everyone for all of your support! We look forward to 2013!
