Passing the Exam with Helen May 6, 2010

In honor of those who are passing their exams this month to graduate, I have pulled together songs that tell a story in their titles of preparing and living through a exam. A special shout-out goes to those who will be taking the CAE (Certified Association Executive) exam tomorrow at ASAE!

I'll also be speaking to Monnette Sudler who has shows coming up at Twins Jazz this weekend! Hear from this "incredible tour de force" about her history of dedication to the jazz guitar.
