Ever wonder how jazz musicians are able to improvise what they play? Well this is your chance to learn, straight from teachers in Lexington’s award winning Jazz program. Our focus will be a simple, accessible approach to improvising melodies. We will also work to develop the important basic skills necessary to playing in an ensemble. Both new and returning students are welcome, and will be placed in an ensemble with other students of similar experience. Students should be able to read music and possess age-appropriate facility on their applied instrument. All instruments are welcome; but we especially need bass (upright and/or electric), drums, piano and guitar players! Interested students are encouraged to attend both weeks. Tuition is slightly higher for this program due to increased expenses.
