Jazz Improvisation Workshops

GM Jazz Improvisation workshosp
Sunday 9th February 2020

Sunday 7th June 2020 

Colwell Arts Centre, Derby Road, Gloucester, GL1 4AD.

You will work alongside our professional tutors Peter Martin and Tessa Frye. The workshop is open to any beginners who can read notated music (c. grade 3), can play major scales (simple key signatures) and understand the difference between major and minor chord symbols, up to musicians of an intermediate and advanced level. Youth and adult musicians are welcome with a limit for rhythm section spaces.

You will learn improvising skills through a range of activities including work on your style, feel, interpretation and interaction skills. There will be plenty of opportunities to develop your understanding of useful music theory, listen to examples and put your understanding into practice as well! The day will conclude with an informal performance, which family and friends can attend.

£30 per musician per day (£15 bursaries available) - you will be invoiced by Gloucestershire Music via email before the event so payment is received  2 weeks prior to the workshop date.
