DHFP: Jazz and the Art of Relationships: Listening for MEANING

  • Tuesday, April 13, 2021
  • 6:00 PM- 7:30 PM
  • Zoom link will be provided

Good relationships are the key factor in success, whether in business, science, medicine, arts and humanities, or the myriad of fields that folks go into. Jazz is a powerful art form for learning how to create good relationships, because its musicians have to communicate and negotiate their agendas with each other, on the bandstand night after night. In this session, we will examine fundamental aspects of human communication, as they unfold in jazz, and apply them to our own lives, fields, and endeavors. This event will focus on listening for MEANING in conversations, and how to get good at understanding each other. Come on out for some cool music and conversation! In lieu of a catered dinner, students who attend and participate in the entire event will receive a gift card to purchase a meal after the event (must attend the entire event).

I don't come from a wealthy background. To be honest with you, if it weren't for the scholarship, I wouldn't be sitting here today.
