Item Description

The Jazz Mindfulness Program is designed to provide students with the life-long ability to be in the moment, listen to fellow musicians and play music for an audience. It is the creation of musician and educator, Adam Bernstein.

Sponsored by the Brooklyn Zen Center, this program is designed to bring music and mindfulness practice together in a new and innovative way and to nurture young people in their development. Students will have the opportunity to play jazz together while learning mindfulness meditation.

The program is for instrumentalists and singers from ages 12 to 18 and all levels of ability are welcome. Each session includes: meditation, jazz theory instruction, and combo and large ensemble practice.

Accomplished composer, arranger, educator, and bassist, Adam Bernstein has performed internationally since 1981. Known for his stylistic diversity, Adam has played with many great musicians including Levon Helm, Perry Robinson, Walter Perkins, Claire Daly, Sahib Shihab, and the string quartet, Ethel. In 1998, while continuing to perform and record, Adam turned his attention toward jazz education. Adam began practicing mindfulness meditation with the Thich Nhat Hanh community in 1994 and now is a regular practicitioner with the Brooklyn Zen Center.

The session to which this offer applies gets underway September 2010.
