Jackie Paris

The Teacher

They say that experience is the best teacher...

If that's true, then Jackie, both literally and figuratively, was taught by the best; and for years Jackie shared what he knew with others. From Master Classes with hundreds of participants, to working with musicians one-on-one, he gave the same level of commitment to the students as he did to his own music

Jackie's method was best summed up in something he himself said: "Love for the music is the most important thing I can give the student. Of course I show the students how get swinging and to improve their pitch and phrasing, etc. – but lots of people can show them that. What I do that’s special is to show the students how to get inside of the song and make the emotional truths of it come alive."
