Looking to live your dream later in life? Meet a NYJA® vocalist making that happen.

Do you often think of finally living your dream and pursuing music as a vocation and passion? You are not alone, although few people realize their potential through careful and consistent study. Linda Harris started with New York Jazz Academy® as a student in the NYJA® Summer Jazz Intensives and quickly developed her skills as a vocalist. Through dedicated practice, learning alongside dedicated NYJA® teachers, she became adept quite quickly, and within a year, she was touring with NYJA® as a featured performer at the Panama Jazz Festival! Above, watch the first episode of Linda’s video series, “My Jazzy New Life,” to learn more about her remarkable journey, then scroll down to check out more from Linda and New York Jazz Academy® in Panama, including her big concert on the main outdoor festival stage.
