Level up your string instrument skills in a dynamic jazz environment!
This exciting program captures the essence of jazz education from a string player’s perspective. Students will learn the basics of the blues, chord structure and harmony, jazz history, improvisation and swing. Taught by a master educator and string player, the curriculum will encourage students to adopt a jazz musician mindset with regards to playing in a group, listening to each other, and being a part of a band.
