DJ IZ

Featured Speaker: DJ IZ

Aside from acquiring five Grammys in music, numerous nominations as a songwriter/producer and selling over 40 million records to date in Pop music, IZ Avila has traveled the world as the DJ for Usher for the last six years. He performed for Obama’s 2013 inauguration in Washington DC and SOLD OUT 5 shows at the 02 Arena and even for Bill Clinton’s Charity event at the Hollywood Bowl with Bono of U2 & Stevie Wonder. In addition to his chops as an accomplished Drummer, Percussionist and Bassist, IZ Avila is perhaps best known for his mastery of his MPC3000, his turntables, crates of vinyl and world-renowned live DJ work and musical production with superstar artists.

In 2008, IZ started his involvement with the “Grammy in the Schools Program,” speaking at various career days at local high schools. That then led IZ to creating his own weekly webinar/streaming show called “Connected” in 2016 which focuses on providing education, mentoring and jobs in the fields of music, recording, film, radio and culinary. Today, he has introduced over 430 jobs to aspiring musicians, producers, directors, engineers and chefs.

These days, aside from song writing, producing and traveling as a live DJ, IZ and his brother Bobby Avila continue launching new landmark products such as the ARQ Drum Machine, UE Boom Bluetooth speaker, and DJ808. IZ Avila is focusing his attention on expanding the Avila Brothers brand along with disrupting the way education is presented to kids in high school who have a passion to pursue an unconventional career in the arts. In 2016, IZ joined the Turnaround Arts program, adopting Standing Rock Middle School in North Dakota and encouraging local leadership, teachers, and students around the country. Since then, IZ has inspired thousands of children at Turnaround Arts schools in California, Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota, and across the country.

**Presented in partnership with Turnaround Arts, a program of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

What’s makes this different?

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill conference or typical online event.  Here’s what makes an exceptional experience for you:

“This conference is such a wealth of applicable strategies. I found something to put into my everyday routine immediately. In confession, I was only going to “play” the conference and watch it later. I could not tear myself away as I waited to see what magic the next presenter was going to unveil. I have already shared three ideas with colleagues too! Thanks for the wonderment of it all!”

– PAMELA BRENNAN

HOW IT WORKS

Know how most conferences make you pick from a long list of sessions? And then you have to sit through yet *another* powerpoint presentation. If you’re lucky, you walk away with 1 or 2 ideas you can actually use.

This conference isn’t like that.

This is an on-demand online event.  You get access to all the sessions instantly in our web-based platform.  And they’re all filled with golden nugget ideas for your classroom.

Log on, watch and go. You can even rewatch if you want – you’ll have lifetime access to everything.

– SHELLY COOPER

“I have been participating in Education Closet’s Online STEAM Conferences for at least 3 years. The Winter 2018 STEAM Conference was by far the best offered. The content presented was rigorous, meaningful, practical, thought provoking, and this list could very well continue! In my roll as the NYSATA STEAM co-Chair I have and continue to recommend Education Closet as a leader on STEAM Education.”

– KATHLEEN BUSHEK

“The Arts Integration Conference was more than I expected. The presenters were excellent. The topics were timely. I will be utilizing more than a few of the activities within the next week. I highly recommend this conference.”

– CELESTE GLASGOW

“I have to say that this conference is one of the best conferences I have ever been to and it was well worth the time and effort to attend.”

– JEREMY TYSON JARVI

“This was a very inspirational conference for me. It was my first experience with STEAM as I am interested in implementing it into our curriculum. As each speaker was presenting, I had so many ideas racing through my head on how I could incorporate these fantastic learning opportunities for my elementary students.”

– JULIA SINGLETON
