Real Music Home
"Real Music Comes From Musicians" sm is an educational /
awareness program sponsored by The American Jazz Institute.
Conceived by Stephanie O'Keefe, a professional musician working in Los
Angeles, the program is in response to the increasing use of
electronically generated music, particularly in genres and venues in
which live music was once a very important factor.
As O'Keefe explains, “We have two generations who have grown up thinking
that music comes out of boxes, and have never heard, for instance, the
sound of a clarinet coming from a real clarinet. I think it's very
important to educate the public about our profession, so they understand
who makes the music.”
