Eli Yamin, a Steinway artist, was born in East Patchogue, Long Island and has performed as a jazz and blues ambassador for the United States, in over 25 countries and in the U.S. at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the White House. His recordings include You Can’t Buy Swing with his jazz quartet; I Feel So Glad, with his blues band; Louie’s Dream, dedicated to “our jazz heroes,” with New Orleans-based clarinetist Evan Christopher, and Live in Burghausen with jazz icon, Illinois Jacquet. His three youth-centered musicals: Nora’s Ark, Holding the Torch for Liberty and MessagefFrom Saturn, have been performed internationally in four languages and across the United States, bringing diverse communities together through jazz and blues to tell socially uplifting stories. Eli is the co-founder and Managing Artistic Director of the Jazz Power Initiative, a non-profit organization that transforms lives through jazz arts education and founding director of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Middle School Jazz Academy. His book, So You Want to Sing the Blues, will be published this fall by Rowman and Littlefield in collaboration with the National Association of Teacher of Singing (NATS).

Education Director Diane Giardi says: “Students with a passion for Jazz or Blues should take advantage of this incredible opportunity to work, study and perform with Eli Yamin”.


East End Arts Music Masters is sponsored by Harlan and Olivia Fischer. East End Arts’ Music Masters Fellowship employs master performers and composers in rock music, jazz, world music and classical music to mentor small groups of talented high school students from all 17 Eastern Long Island school districts. Through one-on-one learning opportunities with masters in the music field, the students are given training in rehearsal and performance skills, in addition to recording, marketing, composition and songwriting. Students leave with life-long relationships and friendships, as well as portfolio materials to assist them in future endeavors, including their pursuit of post-graduate education.
