Composer Allan Zavod at the Wesley College Jazz Workshop

Allan Zavod strikes a chord with students.  At Wesley College Elsternwick Campus, Allan offered 60 students musical tips as part of a jazz workshop.

He's ripped out some gut-churning rock with Frank Zappa, blended jazz and classical tunes with James Morrison and was discovered by the jazz master Duke Ellington.

Wesley College students were in the company of greatness when pianist and composer Allan Zavod paid a visit to the Elsternwick school.

Zavod slipped into the school to offer about 60 students musical tips as part of a jazz workshop.

The musical master has an impressive list of performances, credentials and awards which also includes writing scores for 30 films and television productions.
