Event Details

The slow songs of the jazz repertoire may be less technically demanding than their faster counterparts, but they require special skills and arguably greater artistry to play well. In this workshop we tackle those skills head on, focusing on phrasing and feel, and outline practical avenues for improving your mastery of this form. We also explore rubato, cadenzas and double-time feel and other relevant topics as time allows. Prerequisites: facility on a melodic instrument or vocals, improvisational experience and knowledge of basic jazz harmony. Bringing your instrument is recommended.

Sunday, March 23, 11am – 1:30pm
$40 advance • $55 day of workshop
