Led by Matt Ratcliffe PLAYJAZZ sessions are aimed at musicians who have some facility with their instruments and basic music reading skills, but experience of playing jazz or improvising is definitely not essential. In fact most PLAY JAZZers have previously played in village bands, orchestras, rock or swing bands where they've had no opportunity to play jazz or improvise. PLAY JAZZ offers that opportunity.
This season each workshop is focused on a different aspect of jazz composition and improvisation. This workshop will focus on “How to play on a rhythm changes tune, what constitutes this form and some examples by jazz composers.”
As before Matt will post charts and video/audio clips for you to look at in a Dropbox. We'll give you the password when you buy your ticket.
We've moved our monthly PLAYJAZZ workshops to the superbly equipped DUBREK Studios on Bridge St. To give everyone enough space to express themselves we're limiting each workshop to TWELVE people and while each workshop is a stand-alone session we feel you'll get most out of PLAYJAZZ by attending the whole season of four workshops.
