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.
