Jan 25, 2017

South Shore Conservatory (Hingham, MA) has announced that Summer Music Festival (SMF) jazz ensemble director Aaron W. Bush has been recognized as a top 50 Directors Who Make a Difference by School Band & Orchestra (SBO) magazine.  This prestigious award has honored great music educators from all 50 states across the nation for 19 years.

Approaching his fourth season directing the SMF Jazz Ensemble, Bush notes that SSC has always played a critical role in his life.  “I was a student in the Summer Music Festival from ages of 12 to 20. The Conservatory taught me the joys of making music with others and set me on the path to teach. During the summers of my college years, I was fortunate to also coach Summer Music Festival saxophone students.”
