That's a pretty accurate description and one that Frank himself likes a great deal, too. So, it is with great respect that this festival honors an educator who for nearly 50 years has touched the lives of tens of thousands of people with the gift of music.
But, a bit of background is order. Frank's career started with his playing accordion. Thank God it blossomed from there!
Noted music educator, clinician, adjudicator, guest conductor, composer/arranger and publisher, Frank played drums in Olympic College Jazz Band and studied voice/conducting with Ralph Manzo.

DeMiero began his teaching career as director of choral music at Weatherwax High School in Aberdeen, Washington. He then taught at Mountlake Terrace High School in Mountlake Terrace, Washington for seven years. DeMiero founded the music program at Edmonds Community College where he founded and directed the Soundsation jazz choirs and was Music Department Chairman for 11 years. He was Director of Vocal Jazz Studies at the University of Washington for two years. In 1998 DeMiero retired as the Supervisor of Music for Edmonds School District, where he had served for 13 years. Currently, DeMiero conducts and manages the Seattle Jazz Singers. He is also the conductor of the 100+ voice Sno-King Community Chorale and its 20-person audition-only Ensemble.
Friends and family recently formed the 501(c)(3) non-profit Friends of Frank DeMiero whose twofold mission is to support our community's passion for arts and music education and to raise funds to secure naming rights to the theater ("DeMiero Hall") in the Edmonds Center for the Arts. A major fund-raiser is the annual DeMiero Jazz Fest held each winter in his honor.
DeMiero is the co-founder of Sound Music Publications, a publishing company that offers the best in all areas of vocal jazz literature, recordings, choral clinics/workshops and materials.
DeMiero's choral groups received top honors for their performances throughout the United States, Canada, Central America and Europe.
...
DeMiero founded and directed the Soundsation Jazz Camp and the Frank DeMiero Jazz Camp, which had more than 6000 students and educator participants during the 25 years of its existence (1976-2000). To acknowledge Frank, the city of Edmonds honored him with the Community Service Award 2007. Edmonds School District presented Frank with the 2009 "Celebrating Edmonds Music" Community Partner Award.
Frank also founded Edmonds Community College's annual jazz festival in 1977 and the Frank DeMiero Jazz Festival in 2005. The merger of the two festivals builds on and fulfills the foundation's educational mission and brings internationally-known performing artists to our communities.
Recognized internationally for his innovations in all areas of music education, DeMiero has conducted honor concert and jazz choirs throughout the United States and Canada. He was on the Advisory Council for the International Association of Jazz Educators. He has served as President of the Puget Sound Music Administrators Association, the Sno-King Music Educators, the Washington Chapter of the International Association of Jazz Educators and was the Northwest Coordinator for IAJE. DeMiero was a long-time voting member of the Grammys.
In 2010 KSER-FM, independent public radio, granted Frank their "Voice of the Community Award" for outstanding cultural impact. In 2013 Frank was honored with the 2013 Washington State American Choral Directors Leadership and Service Award.
Frank and his wife, Yvonne, live in Edmonds, Washington.

Currently, DeMiero conducts and manages the renowned Seattle Jazz Singers. He is also the conductor/artistic director/founder of the 110-voice Sno-King Community Chorale. DeMiero is also the owner of Sound Music Publications (www.smpjazz.com), a publishing company that offers the best in all areas of vocal jazz literature, recordings, choral clinics/workshops and materials.
