The following message appeared on another Traditional Jazz Chat List.
Can anyone help a music teacher in Florida make a connection? He lives
in the Sarasota area. Note also his "improv system."

Subject: Help a teacher!

This is one of those times when I "try with a little help from my
friends".  After over a year of substitute teaching in two counties;
after founding and operating a 501 c 3 for five years performing in
all of the regional venues in Sarasota with a program designed to
teach self expression in American music; after copyrighting a system
that enables musicians with a rudimentary (1 year) knowledge of
scales to successfully improvise in 15 - 30 minutes I was lucky
enough to get a job as music director in a private school.  The job
folded largely due to money problems at the school.  I would be
eternally grateful for any assistance in my obtaining employment.
