Listening Room with Dan Giacobassi-Flute 
6:00 pm, Monday, April 28: Listening Room with Dan Giacobassi-Flute
Saxophonist and flutist Daniel Giacobassi started singing in his mother's church choirs as soon as he could walk and talk. He very enthusiastically chose to play flute at the age of 8 and followed his sister and brother into the world of professional music careers. Dan enjoyed the rich musical tradition and training of the Muskegon Public Schools and participated in a Blue Lake Fine Arts European tour. He received a bachelor’s degree in music education at WMU in Kalamazoo, MI and taught music for a couple of years. Dan started playing saxophone in his early 20's. He states, “I can never, it seems, say no to music and have thus played in a huge variety of musical groups and situations: Classical, Jazz, Big Band, Celtic, Appalachian, Japanese, and South American folk music, Country, Tex-Mex/Tejano, Rock, Blues, Pop variety, and numerous recording sessions in California and Michigan.” Dan also spent a year playing Western music in Japan, while studying Japanese traditional and classical music. He joined Jive At Five in 2001 as they were recording Forbidden Fruit, contributing as an arranger, saxophonist and flutist.

Score Workshop-Franchising 
5:30 PM, Tuesday, April 29: Franchise-Is it for me?
Franchising is a good choice for getting into business for yourself. Why? Because franchises bring business systems and markets based upon proven results. With such support and brand recognition, why do 50% of the franchises fail?
This workshop explores various facets of franchising, including:
  • Pros and cons of franchise ownership
  • Making choices based upon fit
  • Matching your style with the right franchise
  • Keys to decision making
Lead by Vance Meyer. Pre registration is highly encouraged.

Brought to you through Score, a national organization of active and retired businessmen and women who volunteer their time to share their expertise with small businesses as well as new business start-ups. Their objective is to help America’s small businesses grow and prosper.
