Starting this month, the Midlothian Music & Arts will being posting a Monthly Teacher Highlight! This is an opportunity to showcase the AMAZING instructors we have here at Midlothian. This month’s highlight is of our NEW woodwind instructor, Chris Sclafani! Chris is a versatile saxophonist, composer and vocalist equally at home with jazz, funk, R&B, rock, soul, and gospel traditions. Graduated with a degree in Jazz Performance Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, he currently lives and performs extensively in and around the Richmond area with various ensembles, including The Flavor Project, Afro Zen All-stars, Brunswick, The Soul Providers, as well as his own band, Evolution of The Groove. He has performed in opening acts for bands such as NO BS Brass Band, Snarky Puppy, and El Debarge and has made various appearances on the Richmond Jazz Festival with Maestro J, The K.G. Experience, and Evolution of The Groove. Along with his past teaching experience, he looks forward to being able to spread the knowledge that he has gained through his past experience on to others.
