Playjazz Workshop

Led by Matt Ratcliffe and Andrew Wood this workshops are aimed at musicians who have some facility with their instrument and basic music reading skills. Musicians with little or no experience of small group jazz or improvising are very welcome.

Each workshop focuses on one or two pieces and a week or two before the workshop Matt circulates charts and YouTube links of those pieces so participants can do a little "homework" before coming together to play and share ideas.

Working in small groups participants will explore ways of using melodic, rhythmic, chordal, modal and textural improvisation in small band settings. Participants will also explore learning and playing music by ear as well as how to express themselves by developing arrangements and improvisations.

All instruments are welcome.

YOU CAN PAY AT THE WORKSHOP BUT YOU CAN HELP MATT PLAN THE WORKSHOP BETTER BY BOOKING IN ADVANCE
