Teen Jazz Celebrates 10 Years Online Serving the Up and Coming Music Community and 2 Years Since It’s Relaunch
In celebration of their 10-year anniversary, Teen Jazz announces a site wide scavenger hunt to earn entries towards great prizes.
Teen Jazz, the leading online community for up and coming musicians, celebrates 10 years since it’s start and two years since it’s relaunch. The site offers music business advice, equipment reviews and features for emerging artists.
Founded by saxophonist Shannon Kennedy in 2004, Teen Jazz began as personal artist website with a few music event reviews and a couple of jazz lessons. With a desire to help young musicians learn about the music industry, Kennedy began regularly writing advice articles, reviews and she conducted interviews with other up and coming musicians. Ten years, multiple interviews with young musicians and even established musicians, hundreds of advice articles, and a radio show later, Teen Jazz is proud to play a role in the development and education of its community.
“Through Teen Jazz, we’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of talented artists and music companies to help education the next generation on the music business,” says Shannon Kennedy. “It’s been an honor promoting and supporting a community of young artists from around the world and it’s humbling to get to know and see so much talent. It’s been one of the most gratifying experiences I’ve had.”
Teen Jazz is one of the largest online music communities for up and coming musicians and has evolved their offerings to include a free eBook packed with music advice, an Album Checklist guide and workbook to help with the recording process, and more.
In celebration of its milestone anniversaries, Teen Jazz will be hosting a scavenger hunt running through their anniversary until September 9, 2014. Participates will have the opportunity to search the site for a “secret saxophone” using hints posted on their Facebook page to earn entries and win great prizes from Teen Jazz’s sponsors.
