About this Event

Gibons uses ideas that will be familiar to string players with classical training to bridge the gap between the worlds of written music and that of improv. The workshop also accommodates a wide variety of skill levels by scaling the complexity of the melodic lines and rhythmic harmony parts we use to the participants comfort. At the very minimum, students must be fluent enough on their instrument to play scales in first position with two accidentals. There is no maximum requirement. European Gypsy music, Gypsy Jazz, Middle Eastern music, and American Songbook jazz standards are the genres used as a base for the workshop repertoire. These all share many aspects of improvisation technique. All parts are learned by ear.
