Berklee College of Music Professor Jason Anick has earned a reputation among string players as an imaginative improviser, versatile composer, and insightful educator. Growing up playing fiddle tunes with his family and classical music with local orchestras, he developed a passion for improvisation, which led him to study jazz and classical music at Hartt Conservatory. He toured with John Jorgenson and his band internationally for ten years. Since then, he has launched a variety of musical projects, including the neo-Gypsy Jazz ensemble Rhythm Future Quartet, an Americana-inspired Acoustic Trio, and jazz collaborations with pianist Jason Yeager and trumpeter Jason Palmer. His string of recordings (Sleepless, Tipping Point, United, Travels, Rhythm Future Quartet and Friends) has earned him praise from Downbeat Magazine as a “Rising Star in the world of jazz violin.” Eager to share the joy of improvisation, he continues to offer workshops around the world and online, developing an ever-growing corpus of melodic ├ętudes designed to enhance the harmonic dexterity of his students.
