b'JAZZ EDUCATIONAs an investment in Detroits strong jazz tradition and a reflection of Fred Erbs love of jazz, we support advanced jazz instruction for musically talented but economically disadvantaged young people.Trunino Lowe is a young trumpet player from Detroits east side. A junior at Wayne State University studying jazz performance, Trunino began playing trumpet in the sixth grade through a program at the Carr Center. Theyd teach us how to play but theyd teach us more outside of music, Trunino explains in the video (right). Theyd teach us how to be good human beings, how to be easy to work with as a musician, how to be professional. They were just theretheyre the ones who really showed us how to be who we are. Throughout his high school years, Trunino joined youth jazz ensembles at Michigan State Universitys Community Music School: Detroit and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Through these programs, Trunino studied with some of Detroits finest jazz musicians, including Kris Johnson, Marion Hayden, and Sean Dobbins. As his playing matured, he began playing gigs throughout the city: at Cliff Bells, Bakers Keyboard Lounge, and the Detroit Jazz Festival. Trunino is dedicated to bringing up the next generation of Detroit jazz musicians. I try to mentor the best way that I can, since Im still kind of young myself, Trunino says. It was instilled in me each one teach oneso whatever I have, I try to give to everyone else.For a complete list of Jazz Education grants, see pg. 2520'
