It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes tremendous heart and patience to teach them to play jazz! Few have done it better than Bay Area musician-educator and Orff music specialist Doug Goodkin, who closes out our season with his effervescent group The Pentatonics (and a few special guests), as they prove that this music is accessible to all.
