Avant, je criais et me faisais mal quand j'atteignais un La4. Mais maintenant je peux atteindre un La4 sans problème, et monter jusqu'au Sol5 sans me faire mal et avec des supers sensations!

Keri Chryst - Artist & Educator

Keri's dual mission as both Performer and Educator go hand in hand.  She views each performances as an opportunity to share knowledge and fresh experiences with her audiences — and strives to include an element of collective creative experience in each of her educational projects.

These passions have led her to develop a full array of original curriculum for her Jazz Vocal Academy International as well as founding a France-based non-profit organization — Arts Embassy International — which lends structural support to projects for Teaching Artists such as herself.

With a Master's in Jazz Pedagogy from Northwestern University ('98) and Bachelor's in French Studies (NU '97) plus 2 decades of experience performing, arranging, creating curriculum, and teaching around the globe — she is primed and ready to spread the jazz gospel to anyone eager to learn, in just about any language.
