Jazz/Pop Styles Workshop
As part of Chautauqua Jazz Week Experience, join the artists-in-residence for a Jazz/Pop workshop on Wednesday, June 15 from 1:30-5 p.m. at Hoover Auditorium. For players of all levels, this workshop covers playing various genres including swing, Latin, ballad, Funk. Learn how to use the genres to interpret melodic lines, improvisation, and more. A culmination of concepts discussed from previous sessions will be incorporated. Through a series of break out sessions, large group demonstrations, a master class, and a jam session, participants will develop their skills in playing jazz-based styles, explore legendary artists and their recordings, and more.
This workshop is a great opportunity for those wanting to expand their playing, or simply learn more about doing music in various jazz-based styles on their instruments or voice.
