This year at Rangsit University in Thailand, our student/faculty duo Simma and Nirajan went to meet up with our Director, Mariano Abello, to attend the international Thailand Jazz Workshop from March 5th to 11th. Every year we send people to Rangsit to attend this festival, thanks to the help of scholarships from Jamey Abersold.
This year, one of the headliners was Allison Miller, a drummer from New York City. Simma and Nirajan talked to us about how master-classes with Allison were the most inspiring of all the classes during the one week intensive. They also said they had had a feel for university life living in the dorms and interacting with the students there.
