Study Jazz Vibes With Dick Sisto
Meet The Faculty: Dick Sisto, Vibes
A lot of people ask each year if we really accept all instruments … YES! In fact, we have dedicated instructors for most all instruments. If you’ve ever wanted an opportunity to study jazz vibes, there is no greater place than the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops.
As music director of the famous Seelbach Hotel (as seen in films The Hustler and The Insider), Sisto’s trio worked with numerous players including Joe Morello, Joe and Pat Labarbera, Kevin Mahagony. Bobby Shew, Fred Hersch, Drew Gress, Barry Ries, Bob Shephard, David Hazeltine, Rufus Reid, Bobby Broom, Dave Samuels, Rich Perry, Andy LaVerne, Walt Weiskoff and many others including gigs with guitarists Larry Koonse in LA and Ben Monder in NYC.
Sisto has given clinics and master classes throughout the U.S. including the Univ. of N. Texas, Queens College in N.Y. and at Leigh Howard Stephen’s World Vibe Congress in Asbury Pk. New Jersey and has been the Vibraphone teacher at the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops for many years. He is a Musser vibraphone artist and has two Signature mallet models with Mike Balter Mallets.
