My husband (Coleman Mellett) and I thought the jam session was great - what was especially wonderful was seeing the multi

to you on
your work to have a great thing going!

My time with the
Somerset Jazz Consortium was invaluable to my development as a human being. At a pivotal time during my teenage years, while
I was sorting out what I most liked to do, Jim Jasion provided an environment for me to feel comfortable and capable in playing
music. I had always enjoyed playing music but it was more of a bedroom thing for me. I may have still tried to
do music but it may have taken much longer by myself. I am currently in my senior year at the University of The Arts
in Philadelphia as a jazz guitar major, leading my own trio and a rock band.
I've composed music for film, and have recently done my own modern
classical piece for a guitar quartet and I probably would not have been able to do something like this without that kind of
support. Im just about done being formally educated now and I owe a lot of that to Jim and the Consortium.
