The Herb Alpert School of Music at the University of California, Los Angeles, has announced that Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance Fellows will teach at this year’s Summer Global Jazz Intensive for high school students.

Seven students at the Hancock Institute—pianist Paul Cornish, bassist Emma Dayhuff, harmonicist Roni Eytan, tenor saxophonist Chris Lewis, trumpeter Aiden Lombard, alto saxophonist Lenard Simpson, and drummer Malachi Whitson—will join UCLA Global Jazz Studies faculty members Steven Loza, Eddie Meadows, and Arturo O’Farrill at the June 22-27 Intensive, a weeklong online program designed for high school students ages 14-18.

The intensive includes master classes, composition workshops, and performances designed around the participants’ musical interests and choice of instruments. These studies will be constructed in large ensemble, small combo, and soloist contexts.

Applications must be received by June 5.
