Flute - Clarinet - Saxophone - Piano
Joel Klein started playing saxophone in 6th grade and has loved it ever since. While in middle and high school, Joel's passion for all music drove him to expand his musical repertoire to include both clarinet and flute. During that time, Joel performed in numerous musical events including Solo and Ensemble, All-County band, All-State band, and was even chosen to be a part of the national Jazz Band of America. Since then, Joel has had a vast amount of experience playing in multiple bands around the central Florida area such as the Maitland and Sanford Jazz Ensembles, the Orlando Jazz Orchestra, Phoenix Jazz Orchestra, the Blue Bamboo Big Band, as well as various other small groups and private events. He is currently studying music performance at Valencia College, and after receiving his Associates in Arts there he will continue his education at the University of North Florida with his focus in Jazz Studies on saxophone. Joel has studied under some of the greats including Chad Leftkowitz-Brown and Seamus Blake, as well as local greats such as Tom Deitz, Jeremy Fratti, and Danny Jordan. Mr. Joel loves what he does and continues to strive for success and to be the best musician he can be!
