Jesse Heasly – Music


Working in the program at Marion Gardens has been amazing for me. All of the teens I worked with were excited and curious to learn more about music, and to explore what it means to make and appreciate music. I wanted to share amazing pop music from the 60s through 80s, and to talk about the music theory that underlies those great old songs. I love that JAX gave me the opportunity to share the beauty I see in music with young people who may not have had the opportunity to explore music. It was so gratifying to be part of a program that offers such great things to the youth that live in Jersey City.
