 This Master class features international jazz recording artist, Greg Abate.  A gifted and critically acclaimed saxophonist, flutist and composer, Greg has recorded more than 16 CDs and is an Adjunct Professor of Jazz Studies at Rhode Island College teaching jazz improvisation and jazz theory.  Greg is an active jazz clinician who conducts workshops and master classes throughout the United States and Europe.
