The JEI Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have created new directions and curricular innovations in regards to jazz education in the state of Iowa. We are pleased to announce the 2016 inductee into the JEI Hall of Fame, Steve Shanley, assistant professor of music at Coe College, where he coordinates the music education and jazz studies programs.
Mr. Shanley will be recognized at the 2016 IBA Convention during the All-State Jazz Concert. JEI would also like to thank fellow nominees Dan Cassady, David Lang, and John Rapson for their past and continued contributions to jazz education in Iowa. We are fortunate to have these educators in our state.
