John teaches photography and music appreciation at 3rd Wind Network

As President of PJS Jazz Society, an organization bringing premiere jazz performances to lower Westchester over the past 39 years, John Brathwaite has fused his love of music and visual art.  John has always been interested in photography, especially as it relates to the music world, and has been featured in prominent cultural publications including Black Enterprise and Essence Magazine. Photographing Blues and Jazz artists is a lot of what he does, as photographing artists during their performances offers him a different, unique insight to the music and the artist and takes the concertgoer experience to the next level.  Click HERE to watch an interview with John.

3WN:  How did you get started in this industry?

John:  My older brothers introduced me to jazz.

3WN:  What is your teaching philosophy?

John: I prefer an interactive approach and truly enjoy sharing my own knowledge while also incorporating the experiences of my students.

3WN:  What is your point of view about your art?

John:  Everyone has some knowledge of the material even if they do not "like" jazz. Through discussions, students realize that what they have found to be unclear, or non-traditional, blossoms into clarity once they have a better understanding of musical improvisation.
