ChelseaChelsea McBride Wins The Inaugural Emerging Jazz Artist Award

Toronto, ON – Toronto Arts Foundation presented the inaugural Emerging Jazz Artist Award to Chelsea McBride last night at the Spoke Club.

Winner, Chelsea McBride, is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, composer and bandleader based out of Toronto, Ontario. After relocating to Toronto from Vancouver to obtain her B.Mus at Humber College, McBride now leads two of her own projects: Chelsea and the Cityscape and Chelsea McBride’s Socialist Night School, both of which feature her original compositions and talents as a saxophonist.

The Emerging Jazz Artist Award, a $10,000 cash prize, is intended to further the career of an outstanding musician and support the pre-production, production and/or recording of original music composed by the recipient. The Emerging Jazz Artist Award was established this year, through the generous donation of Cheryl and Manuel Buchwald, and will be given out annually for at least 10 years.

“Few awards recognize jazz and Toronto is blessed with many talented young musicians worthy of support” said Cheryl and Manuel Buchwald.

The award jury included celebrated jazz artists and leaders, Jane Bunnett, Joe Sealy and Josh Grossman. Toronto Arts Foundation Awards are designed to heighten public awareness of arts and artists in Toronto by shining a spotlight on artistic excellence and achievement.

Student Feedback

Guitar Teacher Ryan

My 16 year old daughter took guitar lessons at Academy of Music last year. She loved it. Her instructor Ryan, was a great teacher and she was able to pick songs that she wanted to play, like Taylor Swift or Coldplay. This made the lessons fun for her.  The best thing that happened was this summer she played her guitar at the camp fire at the cottage and had a great time doing it.  She is a shy girl so this was huge.  It really helped her self confidence. Thanks again
