Justin Kauflin is a musician who, after losing his sight at the age of 11, gravitated towards playing jazz piano. Receiving top honors at jazz festivals across the US, he began performing professionally by age 15, most notably with the Jae Sinnett Trio. Kauflin has since performed with many renowned musicians, and currently tours much of the world with his trio.

In this performance for students, Justin will be performing songs from previous releases, as well as from his new album Coming Home. This set will consist of intermittent dialogue woven between songs, where Justin will speak to the various musical components and history of jazz, his experiences with notable mentors, and his creative process. Justin will also speak about his personal journey with the art form while discussing aspects of learning and playing with physical challenges. Following the performance, students will be welcomed to a short question-and-answer session with the artists.
