All you need is an instrument, and some basic skills on how to play it.
We will form a little ‘participants-upside-down-jazz-band’. Three afternoons of classes with some of our favorite local musicians. We will cover a lot of topics such as arranging, improvising, maybe some jazz history, rhythms and specific musicians/band styles from the swing era.
Let’s “Jamn’ right”!
Every day, we have two musicians teaching this track. All of them are professional jazz musicians with a lot of experience in playing Swing music and, even more importantly, teaching. All of them will also play with their bands during the evening parties (Lester’s Blues, Hop ‘sh Bam & Reverent Juke), so we can learn and experience how they create their own magic.
