On Feb. 1, Harborfields High School’s jazz band traveled to Centereach to take part in Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association’s Day of Jazz.
The band performed an adjudication set and received feedback from rising star saxophonist Alexa Tarantino, took part in a play-a-long workshop with the “One More Once Big Band” and participated in a lead sheet clinic helmed by saxophonist Alex LoRe.

It was an incredibly positive educational experience and each performance aspect of the band’s day was met with excellent advice and strong praise.
“Being steeped in jazz is the best way to learn, and this event helps with that process by putting students in direct contact with professionals,” noted jazz band director Daniel Bilawsky. “That was made perfectly clear throughout our time at SCMEA’s Day of Jazz.”
