Monica forgot to grab a picture with Jeff when they chatted during the Jazz Educator Network conference in January, so she stole this awesome picture of saxophonist, educator and entrepreneur Jeff Antoniuk off of Facebook.

In this episode, Monica sits down with saxophonist and entrepreneur Jeff Antoniuk (Washington, DC) to discuss growth, process, and sharing. He tells how his 17-year old self made the fateful decision to take a year to get “jazz out of his system” instead of heading straight to school to be a physicist, how he uses that feeling you get when around really great players as inspiration and overcomes shutting down, the importance of playing other instruments like drums and bass, Brave business moves and how he grew his business from a couple of students to the booming business focusing on adult students, the story behind his Jazz Process series and how he started making videos using simply his iphone and duct tape, and his current Diggin’ Deeper series.


I have shut down hundreds, thousands of times, and the trick is, getting right back on it.... The trick for me as a human being is to acknowledge it, process it, move.
— Jeff Antoniuk
I think I’m a good teacher because I did everything the most possible wrong ways, before I found something that worked, so I have a sense of the lay of the land for a lot of people.
