In the all-new 

YoungArts MasterClass episode the aspiring musicians – saxophonist Patrick Bartley, pianist Tony Madruga, and bass player Russell Hall – meet at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York to practice under the tutelage of jazz master Wynton Marsalis. The mentees pay close attention as he provides invaluable critique on musicianship and offers insights into the realm of improvisation.

"Jazz is the only music in the world where four people sit up on a bandstand and they have to give shape and logic and form to music as they’re making it," Marsalis explains. "What musicians do and artists do is they give form to chaos."

Reflecting on the importance of passing the torch, Marsalis remarks “I want them to take away from it that ‘you're a part of this,’ and we need you to come out here and be a part of it and make it be glorious, make it be great…and they’re going to do that. Watch…”

In 2011, 

YoungArts MasterClass received an Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Children’s Nonfiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Program. The series recently received another Emmy nomination, in the category of Outstanding Children’s Program.Wynton Marsalis: A YoungArts MasterClass
