September 2017

 

Hello everyone,

So I've finally made the move back to Canada.  Although I've had a wonderful career based in Seoul for the last 15 years, the time has come for me to return to Canada.  I'm looking forward to building my career here and to reconnect with everyone in the North American music community.

I'm very excited to commence a new semester at St. Francis Xavier University where I will maintain a Saxophone studio as well as teach Arranging, Jazz History, and Jazz Ensembles.

Drop me a line.  I'm looking forward to reconnecting with everyone now that I've returned to Canada.

Hello everyone, 

After a period of time spent in Canada, I'm now back to living in Seoul.
I'm happy to be back to Dong-Ah Institute of Arts (www.eng.dima.ac.kr) for the new semester. A great group of young musicians to work with.
I've added to this site some /live-audio-samplesnew audio samples of some of the playing I did while I was in Toronto during the fall of 2016.
Enjoy!
Drop me a line if you are passing through Seoul,,,

Kenji
