About Isaac V
Get to know Isaac V
Howdy there, feller! My name is Isaac Velazquez and I have been with Music and Arts for over a year now, but my relationship with them did not start with my employment believe it or not. Back in 2010 when I was a young boy in Chicago, Music and Arts facilitated an instrument trial for all kids in the school program who were interested in taking band as an elective. 10 years later, music is my livelihood, motivation, and my key to sanity. I played in an outside conservatory for all four years of High School in Highland Park, IL called Midwest Young Artists Conservatory under the direction of my mentor Christopher Madsen (Former Assistant Director of Jazz Studies at The Bienen School of Music Northwestern University, a Vandoren/Downbeat featured musician, and a Master of Music Julliard graduate) and under the direction of Quintin Coaxum. I continued with my jazz journey under Christopher Madsen's mentorship after High school at The University of Illinois in Chicago before fleeing to Florida due to Covid. Although some may describe me as an old jazz head, my first love of music was discovering it, so do not hesitate with any non-jazz questions. Come on in and show me what you got!
