Workshop sessions will focus on developing individual virtuosity while promoting the musicianship that is needed for ensemble playing. The key areas of focus include Theory /Practice, Hearing Rhythms, Exploration, Phrasing, Improvisation, Repertoire/Performance and Band Leadership Skills.
Being able to play with professional musicians who provide constructive feedback raises the level of all the ensemble members playing, while participating in the performance fosters confidence – newly developed skills and progress are brought to a new level.
The workshops are open to instrumentalists and vocalists of all ages. We recommend that participants be at an intermediate level of playing, with a basic familiarity of jazz repertoire and an understanding and ability to play or sing all of the major scales.
Participants must be able to attend all workshop sessions and the performance and practice between sessions.
