You may be interested to know that I’ll be doing a couple of courses for University of Auckland’s Centre for Continuing Education soon. The first explores the history of jazz in New Zealand starting on June 15- details here. The second is an introduction to jazz course for people ranging from complete jazz novices to those wanting to explore the style in a structured way. That will be starting on August 10, and the details are here. I’ll also be talking at Winter Week (July 4-8- I’m talking on the 7th) on the Jazz Age in New Zealand- details here.
No other public talks on the agenda at the moment, but there might be something for the Auckland Heritage Festival and the Auckland Jazz Festival later in the year.
