Hammond Artist Emiko has been invited to perform at the World Youth Jazz Festival in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from May 5-7, 2017 as well as give two Songwriter Masterclasses at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and the Universiti Putra Malaysia on May 3rd and 4th respectively.
Emiko’s Songwriter Masterclasses have been garnering high praise, returning for a second year at Sam Ash Stores around the United States and are now expanding to the university level internationally. Of these opportunities, Emiko says, “I’m beyond thrilled to have been invited to perform at the World Youth Jazz Festival and to speak in front of university audiences. Music education is vital, now more than ever and it’s an honor to be recognized as a music educator and performer on my Hammond SK1. It’s always exciting to see everyone’s reactions when I show them exactly what a wonderful writing tool the SK1 is and how awesome it is on stage!”
The World Youth Jazz Festival runs from May 5-7, 2017, is free and is open to audiences of all ages.
