Jazz performer, educator and instructor, Jennifer Madsen, has been tapped to co-present a clinic with Cherly Bentyne (of Manhattan Transfer fame) at the 2017 Jazz Education Network Conference in New Orleans.
The Jazz Education Network is a global non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in the United States of America that seeks to advance jazz education, promote performance and develop new audiences.

The organization operates with a volunteer board, two part-time employeers and two independent contractors, and hundreds of volunteers from around the world. The Founding Steering Committee, led by co-founders Mary Jo Papich and Dr. Lou Fischer, created the mission that JEN lives by today:
