With KENNY WESSEL:
If you are looking to expand your jazz repertoire and grow as a musician, this is the workshop for you. The Jazz Standards workshop is a great place for musicians to learn the language of jazz in an ensemble setting. This class will focus on the blues form and the AABA form, through the exploration of compositions by Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus and many other influential musicians. With an emphasis on the rhythm of swing, students will have the opportunity to play over these chord changes and will gain valuable experience in improvisation. Intermediate level.
