Jazz in the Living Room clinics were started by teacher, composer and musician Ranny Reeve, over 40 years ago. Ranny has been teaching piano and composition in since 1949. Originally, Ranny invited his students and their friends to his home for Jazz Clinics to learn to play or sing jazz and to improvise. Working professional musicians from Long Island and NYC came up through the clinics and returned regularly to help the new students grasp the concept of Jazz Improvisation and most of all to have fun!
