Composer, educator and bandleader, Dezron has established himself as a musician's musician, respected not only for his talent but also for his dedication to the authenticity of the music. His talent for music is not limited to the stage, or the recording studio. As a teacher, he encourages his students to embody the music. Technique can be perfected with practice, but it is important that the student understand the emotion behind the music, and is able to replicate that in the song. Dezron has taught at The Artist collective in Hartford, and Martocchio Music in Simsbury. He also gives workshops at various institutions. While in college, he co-founded, The New Jazz Workshop of Hartford, a group of like-minded young musicians dedicated to preserving the heart of Jazz. The group offered him an opportunity to showcase his talents as a composer and bandleader. Still while in college, the group received The Evelyn Preston Grant and also had the privilege of opening for Slide Hampton. The group performs collectively across the Tri State area and selectively with notable jazz musicians across the world. Their debut album "Underground" was released in July of 2012. We are very excited to host The Dezron Douglas Black Lion Quartet right here on our stages.
