Joan Cartwright

Joan Cartwright has toured five continents and 16 countries including the U.S.A., eight European countries, Brazil, Jamaica, Mexico, Ghana, Gambia, South Africa, China, and Japan, with her swinging brand of jazz and blues.

She is a composer and her book, IN PURSUIT OF A MELODY contains 40 songs and lyrics to standard songs: “A Night in Tunisia” by Dizzy Gillespie, “Blue Bossa” by Kenny Dorham, “Tune Up” by Miles Davis and “Bessie's Blues” by John Coltrane.

Joan's book also contains two lectures that she's given to over 5,000 children and college students, in U.S., Switzerland, Sicily, China and Japan: WOMEN IN JAZZ and SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SINGER? Her workshops are dynamic and educational, highlighting the pitfalls and benefits of the music business. She contends that, “Knowing music theory is a step in the right direction for any singer who truly wants to excel in the world of music!”
