His acting experience includes the leading role in the Boston Art Group’s production of “Harlem Renaissance”, which toured across New England, and the current production of a play Stan conceived called “Coming Up For Air: An Autojazzography”, a Vinyard Playhouse production, with performances on Marthas Vineyard and in Boston at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre.

Stan has a M.A. degree from Lesley College in Expressive Arts Therapy, and is an adjunct professor there, having taught classes in music and movement therapy. He also teaches at Berklee College of Music, Tufts University and Longy School of Music.

Stan is Co-Executive Director of Express Yourself.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
