MUSICIAN Born:

Mark Haskins

Music in the Haskins' household was as much a second language as English or Spanish is to another. Mark Haskins’ late father was a violinist and his sister a music teacher. So there was always a tune coming from some part of the house. Mark's room though, was flooded with the likes of Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery. Imagine a seven-year- old, tackling the likes of “Footprints” and “Born to Be Blue”, on the piano. Mark did just that, as his lessons started at an early age, only moving onto the drums a decade later. Five years later, he switched to the guitar. Many thought he'd jump right into music after high school, but he went to University and graduated with a master’s degree focused on electronic engineering and computer science. Soon after that was obtained, he switched gears and went on to further his music studies, (jazz) at the Trinity College of Music in London

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.
