This time, again at the invitation of music educators Scott & Roz Foster, Camilo taught high school and junior high students at Urban School, Live Oak School and Community Music School, encouraging the students to sing their parts to themselves as an effective learning technique. He also took part in Scott’s monthly music event at Bird & Beckett Books and Records, which allowed him to answer questions from the public about Cuba, about connections between jazz and Cuban music and more. A great time was had by all!Main photo: Students jam in the courtyard at Conservatorio Amadeo Roldán at Jazz Amistad 2019.
