Ashley and Benje Daneman, founders of the Jazz and Creative Institute, started the Kalamazoo Youth Jazz Orchestra last fall. Since then, they have seen a spike of interest in learning jazz in the Kalamazoo region. They're now able to offer jazz lessons to people of all ages with Jazz Academy, which offers weekly 30- or 60-minute lessons, plus group sessions and public concerts.  On Sunday, they and other faculty members will host an open house to give anyone a chance to ask questions, see the teaching studios, and witness a jazz session hosted by the faculty members of the Academy. The open house is Sunday, Sep 23 from 3 - 6 pm at 310 N. Rose Street. The Danemans gave Cara Lieurance a preview.
