Wesley Lewis

Hello. As of this upcoming school year, starting August 7th, I will be a junior at Weaver High School. I play an alto saxophone, and take interest in jazz. I am wondering if there are any scholarships involving the Jazz field. I am aware that it involves audition, though I am curious. Thank you for your time.

John Luke Townsend

Hello I’m interested in auditioning to be in the marching band and auditioning to be part of the Jazz Ensemble I. I’ve filled out a scholarship application and it shows that it’s a band/vocal/piano/jazz audition. So I was wondering if I wanted to audition for the jazz ensemble would I need to fill out another application and set a different date? And would I need to sit in with the jazz ensemble before or after the audition?

John Harvey

I'm exploring the production of a collection of songs made famous by the Allman Brothers performed by big band ensemble. I heard that you may have arranged some of their work?
Thanks, John Harvey

Kirkland Pope

I am a senior in highschool, and I am interested in auditioning for the Jazz ensemble. I do not want to do marching band on top of it. I was wondering how big the range of scholarship money is if I only did the jazz ensemble and qualified for the scholarship.

Hi Andy,

I am searching for a piano teacher for my boys. I was wondering if you have any openings, where you teach lessons {in your studio/our home/another facility} and any other details that would be helpful.

Thank you!

Dear Andy,

I hope this finds you well.

I came across your name while being in touch with a few different musicians in Colorado and thought I would drop you a line. I'm a recruiter with Proship Entertainment - I believe the last time we were in touch with you was a few years ago.

I know that you are busy teaching and with many projects but would you or any of your students be interested in the possibility of cruise ship employment?

I'd be happy to hear from any musicians (trumpet, trombone, sax with doubles, electric bass, electric guitar and drums, besides piano). We are currently particularly in need of showband pianists and singing piano bar entertainers.

Showband pianists are part of the band that accompany the production shows and guest artists. They also occasionally are required to play lounge/jazz sets. Applicants must demonstrate strong sight reading ability & versatility in various styles via an audition process.

Piano Bar Entertainers must above all be great entertainers as well as skilled pianists and strong singers. They must be comfortable interacting with the crowd and contribute to the lively atmosphere of the bar. You must be comfortable leading sing alongs, doing theme nights, playing a variety of music - ie. contemporary pop, Motown, oldies etc. and being front and centre. It is NOT a laid back/background cocktail position! Submission is via video demo.

We also book jazz quartets (piano, bass, drums, vocals), party bands, country bands, one man bands (guitarists), and a few positions for singers, in case you are currently working with an ensemble that might fit our criteria.

Do any of these positions interest you and fit your skills or do you know someone who might fit the bill?
If so, I'd like the chance to speak with you on the phone to discuss your experience.

I am the host of "Spotlight" on Songcast radio. I am writing to ask if you would be interested in doing a phone interview for the radio program.

Meg McKinney

Hi Andy:
'Love these tracks here... I got your link from Michael Glaser's Jazz e-mail, for this week's performance at Ona's (not sure if can make it, sorry to say). But is it possible to still purchase your Alone Together cd? any other cd to listen to for jazz? If so, what is link? or where?
Btw, we met about two years ago when you were really new! to Alabama, and were playing a Sunday jazz brunch gig at the cafe, ORE, in Crestline Village, Birmingham. I'm a professional photographer.
ORE has been changed to a bbq joint, but they had jazz there every Sunday usually w/ Cleveland Eaton's group.
The info here on this site about your work prior to AL, and also at the JSU program is impressive. The university is lucky to get you there.

Hi Andy, are you still in the Denver area and teaching lessons? I noticed most of your gigs are down south. I\'m looking for a keyboard teacher.

Emerson Fang

Dear Dr. Nevala,

My name is Emerson Fang; I'm moving to Denver, CO today from New York for my first job, and was looking around for piano teachers in the area. I'm 25, so I suppose it's mainly for recreation, but I greatly enjoy playing and want to improve and expand my knowledge/skill. Perhaps someday, once I'm able, it'd be nice to be able to play in gigs, with an ensemble, or as an accompanist. It looks like you're probably not around there anymore, but I noticed your teaching philosophy on a website ("Only take lessons from people who can play. Teachers teach by example."), and whole-heartedly agree. I don't really need all the fluff, just a great teacher. I was wondering if ysou might be willing to make any recommendations for someone like me, or might know of anyone who is a great teacher. I'd consider myself intermediate-advanced, but have very little formal music theory/ear training and no improvisational training. I've only played classical piano compositions, and had private piano lessons for about ten years before going to college. I also play the violin, and played in orchestras before. If you have any questions that you think are important to consider before offering a recommendation, please feel free to ask. Thanks so much and I appreciate your help!

Question; I have a cd named Cornerstone jazz grp. Do you have available any cds with similar music such as Sun Valley Jump?

Louise Hewlett

Hi, I am Coy Hewlett's mother and was just googling you since the JSU site doesn't give a lot of information about you. I just want you to know that Coy loves working with you in class. He fell in love in with jazz in high school and is so glad to have you at JSU so he can continue learning. Maybe next year he can work his schedule to get in your improvisation class and be a part of the latin jazz group. We will be checking the schedule to see if we can make some of the jazz events. Coy's high school jazz teacher at Hoover is Sally Vines White. She plays in several area groups, one of which is called Super Jazz. She would be a great contact for you to meet the Birmingham area jazz musicians. Coy has her number if you are interested.

Nicholas Browdues

I'm an aspiring pianist, and a capable guitarist. Piano has really grabbed me though. I recognize the importance of a good teacher, and am seeking your advice. I live here in Boulder Colorado and love latin music. Chucho Valdez, Willie Colon etc. Help? ;-)

I know your a very busy person, and if you have the time to recommend a name I would be so greatful. I currently am able to figure out R&B songs by ear and have a working knowledge of music theory. I am working as an electrical engineer and plan on staying in Boulder for a long time. If you know someone who could help move me in the right direction I am ready to work. I know it takes time and dedication, and I plan on being commited to the 'right' teacher for a long time. Any advice would be so helpful.

I used to stop by Jax State and audition kids. Any that are ready to work?

Greetings Andy!

I'm looking forward to meeting you here at JSU in a few weeks!

I think I remember an email that was forwarded to the music faculty that you were looking for a place to rent here in Jacksonville, so I've always kept my eye out. I recently moved to JSU too, so I understand how difficult it is to find a decent place to rent.

A house did just open up on my block. I haven't seen the inside yet, but it could have potential. Let me know if you are still looking for a place to rent and I will pass along contact information as well as pictures (by phone is the easiest for me).

Let me know. Looking forward to your future studio and ensembles here at JSU!

My name is Yotam Rosenbaum; I'm the EVP of Music and Artist Relations at Earbits online radio. I've found your site and music through jazzwest.com and enjoyed it very much.

I am emailing because the San Francisco Chronicle has teamed up with Earbits to launch an online radio platform to promote bay area bands and bands with bay area performances. It will be promoted to thousands of bay area music seekers. SF Gate will promote this all over the Entertainment, Nightlife and Things to Do sections of their site. It's going to be a great way to promote bay area shows and artists.
Generally this will be a paid marketing platform; however, we are looking for great bay area artists to showcase during our unsold airtime and we would like to extend the opportunity to you at no cost. We would also include your music in the programing of the main Earbits site.

Please let me know if you are interested.

I sold a CD of yours on my World Jazz Scene site and the check I mailed to you was returned. What address should I send it to.
Are you staying busy?
Jeez. I\'m having trouble reading the code below because all of the type is so small on your site I\'m having trouble reading it. I\'ll keep trying until I luck out.

My mind just happened to be going back to Monday nights at Dazzle. You, Victor, Mike, and Jimmy (and the occasional DU student). Good stuff. I loved the way Mike and Victor would play (both meanings) during their solos. Caravan! Autum Leaves!

Oubladi-Oublda, I know life goes on Bra. Hope things are well.
