My first peer-review article "Inclusivity and Adversity in Jazz Education: A Case Study of Paul Read" was just published in the fall 2015 edition of the Canadian Music Educator (57,1). I will post it shortly. Picture of Paul Read to the right. Do not be mislead by the Peer Review Corner heading, it was not edited in any way, other than the usual peer-review process. This is either good or bad, depending on whether you like the writing. If you have ever tried to get anything published, it is a long and tedious process. When it does happen, you can either be elated or you can just feel numb. I feel both - is that possible? I am jazzed that I have something out there for people to read and numb to the fact that I need to join the circus again, start performing and wait for the reviewer's applause. What only 1 of 3 audience members clapped? Well, on to the next circus ;)
