"In 2012 I started the first "Combo" so that my drum and piano students could use the music they were learning to play together.

Within a few short months students of all ages and instrumentation and their parents started showing up one at a time-at  my gigs to sit-in with me. ​  Then,...the  parents & families started getting together and  bringing groups of 3 or 4 of their students---and staying for the show.

Before long I was counting off the tunes and getting out of the way  because the students were crowding me off the stage!  And the "kids" could handle it by themselves."--Georges

In 2013 we kicked off the first of  "Bend Broadband's Music Education Workshops  at The Oxford" with the original Bend Student Jazz & Funk Ensemble performing and backing the Mel Brown Quartet!
