Jazz Masterclass With Isaiah J. Thompson

HSA welcomes pianist, band leader, and composer Isaiah J. Thompson!

Please join us on Thursday March 31, 2022, 5:00-6:30pm, in Dorothy Maynor Hall for a masterclass led by pianist, bandleader, and composer Isaiah J. Thompson! Mr. Thompson will guide HSA’s jazz band students through a masterclass that includes a critique on technique, performance, and improvisational skills. The session will conclude with a performance by Mr. Thompson.

Mr. Thompson is a 2018 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award recipient, took second place at the Thelonious Monk Competition, was named a Steinway Artist, and worked on the Golden Globe nominated soundtrack for Motherless Brooklyn directed by actor Edward Norton, starring Willem Dafoe, Alec Baldwin and Bobby Cannavale. He has perfected his style and approach performing with jazz royalty including Ron Carter, John Pizzarelli, Christian McBride, Steve Turre and Buster Williams. A graduate of Juilliard, he began his love affair with music at an early age, attending The Calderone School of Music and later joining Jazz House Kids and NJPAC Jazz for Kids. Now at the young age of 24, he is garnering global recognition for what one reporter called the “…ability to deliver the so elusive X factor across a wide range of jazz styles.”
