Tim Mayer! Jazz woodwind specialist & educator from Boston, Massachusetts

November 17, 2015


Since September of 2014, I have resided in Xalapa, Mexico, where I have been a full-time professor at the Center for Jazz Studies (Centro de estudios de Jazz) at Veracruz University, or JazzUV, where I have taught private lessons, ensembles, ear training, theory, and directed the big band. The job has also involved a great deal of curriculum development. I have also served as artistic director for the school’s 7th Festival Internacional de Jazz, which hosted over 40 national and international artists including Maraca Valle’s Latin Jazz All Stars, and the Tootie Heath Trio, as well as the H√©ctor Infanz√≥n Cuarteto, H√©ctor Rodriguez/Agustin Bernal Quartet, Gerry L√≥pez Quartet, and the Orquesta Nacional de Jazz de M√©xico.

Previously I have worked as an educator in the Boston Public Schools through Berklee College of Music’s City Music program. ¬†Since 1991, this program, an extension of the President’s Office of Education Outreach has been providing quality musical education and support for underserved urban 6th-12th graders. ¬†By enlisting active faculty from the college as well as hiring additional talented musicians, the program offers private lessons, theory classes, and ensemble classes, both at the college, and through the Faculty Outreach program, at the high schools. ¬†Currently I am on leave from City Music while I work at JazzUV.

In the summer, I am on the saxophone faculty for Berklee’s 5 Week Performance Program, where i teach private lessons and labs in the Woodwind Department, a Theory in Performance class for wind players, and coach ensembles.

Additionally, I am available to teach master classes and private lessons. Please contact me for further information!
