This invigorating summer session is open to intermediate level string, woodwind, brass, piano and drum/percussion players ages 18 and up who are looking to expand their jazz knowledge and improvisational ability. Students work in a small group with a professional jazz coach, learning classic jazz repertoire, blues forms and standards from the Great American Songbook. Improvisation exercises will broaden the player’s vocabulary and focus on the building blocks of a solo.
