Music Education Monday: A master class
with Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer

In addition to being two of the top pianists in contemporary jazz, both Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer (pictured) are past winners of much-coveted MacArthur Fellowships (aka "the genius grant"), and both have developed accompanying reputations as deep thinkers.

For this week's "Music Education Monday," here's a small window into the minds of both men, via a video of a joint masterclass they did in September 2014 at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Moran is a member of the NEC faculty, while Iyer is now a professor at Harvard in nearby Cambridge, MA.
