Welcome to the website for the Jazz Education Connection of Ohio.

Congragulations to the members of the JECO Intercollegiate Jazz Ensemble on a fabulous performance at the OMEA Convention.

Thanks Dr. McDaniel for doing such an exceptional job. Special thanks to the the Collegiate Jazz Ensemble directors from across the state for supporting this ensemble. Visit the IJE tab for program information. 

Other JECO happenings at OMEA included the JECO/Stantons Reading band under the direction of Ben Huntoon and clinics presented by Bill Burns (Centerville City Schools), Craig Bailey (CCM), and Mike Bisig (Beavercreek City Schools). Thank you OMEA for providing these jazz education venues.
