Aebersold, a nationally-known saxophonist and authority on jazz education and improvisation, will be on campus conducting sessions with students in conjunction with ISUâ€™s Barnes Lectureship Series.
Aebersold has developed a series of Aebersold play-a-longs book and recording sets (now numbering over 113 volumes) as well as various other supplemental aids for the development of improvisational skills. The Aebersold book and recording sets allow a musician the opportunity to practice and improvise with well-known jazz personalities at home as well as in the classroom. The recordings employ some of the best jazz musicians in the world. This concept has been responsible for changing the practice habits of thousands of musicians around the world.
He was a pioneer in encouraging small group classes which concentrate on jazz improvisation, and he is the director of the Summer Jazz Workshops.
