MILES AHEAD Children's Summer School

August 7, 8, 9 (10 - 3. all three days) A three day jazz summer school for young instrumentalists and singers aged 10 - 16. Young musicians will work with our talented and experienced musician/tutors in sessions focusing on improvisation, small group playing or singing and jazz techniques. The course is aimed at young musicians who have some facility with their instrument and basic music reading skills but little or no experience of playing jazz or improvising. EXPERIENCE OF JAZZ OR INSTRUMENT GRADES ARE NOT ESSENTIAL The Summer School will provide a supportive but challenging environment in which children can gain confidence in their own musical judgement and imagination. They will explore ways of using melodic, rhythmic and textural improvisation in small band settings. They will also explore learning and playing music by ear as well as how to express themselves by developing arrangements and improvisations on written scores. You can pay through the box office below and we will send you an application form. ALTERNATIVELY YOU CAN GET AN APPLICATION FORM BY EMAILING US AT geoff@derby-jazz.co.uk
