Howard Rees spent a decade in New York apprenticing with jazz master Barry Harris. Upon returning to Toronto he founded Howard Rees’ Jazz Workshop, a school that has been home to more than 3,000 students over its 38 years.
In addition, Howard has been invited to teach in many schools around the world including Shobi University, Japan; University of Leeds, UK; and Stanford University, USA. Between 1998 & 2001, Howard was a featured contributor to Keyboard Magazine.
Howard has played with some of the greats in jazz including; Jaki Byard, Ray Drummond, Slim Galliard, Barry Harris, Earl May, Charles McPherson, Akira Tana and Leroy Williams. He produced the critically-acclaimed Barry Harris Workshop Video series, the go to resource for studying the late maestro’s world-renown methodology. These materials were coined the 'Bebop Bible' by Tommy Flanagan, and are used by university level jazz courses throughout the world.
