Personalised Feedback & Collaboration
My role here as the Community Manager is to encourage participation and collaboration to inspire us all to become better jazz musicians.
Moving forward, anything submitted in the forum I will provide personal feedback and guidance. I’d love to hear what you’re all working on and I’m more than happy to share my insights, advice and opinions.
