We've relaunched our monthly PLAY JAZZ workshops for adults led by Matt Ratcliffe. at a new venue The Maypole. The 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. Many 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 Matt will be looking at music by DUKE ELLINGTON, THELONIOUS MONK, DAVE BRUBECK and CHARLES MINGUS and he'll 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.
To give everyone enough space to express themselves we're limiting each workshop to TWELVE 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.
