Adam Maness Jazz Residency

St. Louis Area and Metro East school bands, bring a jazz professional into your rehearsal room! The Sheldon is offering you a FREE, one-hour residency with multi-instrumentalist and composer Adam Maness. Adam will meet your jazz band where they are at, and bring them to the next level with practical, actionable advice. You don’t need a concert-ready product to share- Adam can work with your band mid-way through the process. Through the generous support of our donors, this residency is available free to schools.

Now scheduling for winter/spring 2023.
