Jazz is America’s greatest music tradition and one of the most fun and challenging musical genres to perform. In this course, students will learn to play in a traditional jazz style. Students will work on swing feel, improvisation, and ensemble playing. Parts will be written to match each students level of experience and skill. All students interested in participating in the Jazz Workshop must already be able to display a certain degree of proficiency on their chosen instrument. All students must have at least two years of experience, and auditions will be held for placement if necessary. The workshops are limited to two vocalists, two guitarists, one bass player, one keyboard player, one drummer, one saxophone/flute/clarinet/trombone or violin player.
