Mike runs his own summer jazz improvisation workshops, and works with local school jazz bands to help them develop their skills.  His 25+ years in public education, his knowledge of jazz and jazz history, and his enthusiasm and humor, help to make him an ideal motivator for school-age jazz musicians.  

In November of 2006, Mike began hosting a jam session for student musicians.  The RMF Project Penske Jazz Jam features professional musicians and educators from Berks County and beyond, performing with and giving advice to budding jazz artists.

Mike’s goal is to keep jazz alive and well for our students in Berks County and beyond!
