VegasNorthU – 2017 Performance Workshop Series – Adult Jazz Band For Beginners

Tags : 

VegasNorthU is excited to host our second annual set of jazz band workshops this Fall 2017 in Toronto, ON, Canada, focusing on teaching the beginner musician how to play with and in a section, individual responsibilities, backing a singer, ensemble techniques and the necessary beginning skills of learning how to read swing and other styles.

This is a great chance for adults to get together and have fun while learning the basics of playing jazz while performing in a group. 

Each group will have a performance at the end of their semester. 

These 12 week semesters are for those players who used to play a long time ago and wish to get back into playing again and for players in ensembles already who wish to brush up their skills.

This Fall, we are taking on the following instruments:

Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Flue, Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano 

Please contact us if you are interested in participating in our Fall 2017 semester.

“Many musicians do not get the opportunity to perform in a band or group since they feel their talent may not be up to par, their work schedules won’t allow the time to dedicate to it or their auditions do not go as well as hoped when they try out; hence why these workshop clinics were designed”

The Workshops are designed for the beginner adult musician to have a ton of fun rehearsing great charts. Ensemble blending, timing, stylistic interpretation, reading and balance techniques is only a few topics covered in these workshops.
