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.
This season each workshop is focused on a different aspect of jazz composition and improvisation and this month’s workshop will focus on;
Modal Jazz - the influence of George Russell on Miles Davis and the styles of Modal Jazz that have developed from Kind of Blue onward, what is the Modal Style and understanding Chord/Scale relationships.
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.
