Saturday 2 April: 13:30 – 17:00 at The Globe with Steve Glendinning
The Language of Music
This month’s workshop has improvisation at its heart. Whether you’re new to jazz and improvised music or a veteran with years of experience, join us for a practical, performance-based exploration of the language of music.
Tired of playing the same licks? Feel like you’re not progressing musically? We’ll be taking a fresh approach to harmonic progressions and jazz standards in order to unlock the infinite potential these vehicles for improvisation contain, developing interesting and enjoyable practical techniques to broaden your musical vocabulary and enable you to play freely and effectively over your favourite tunes.
Areas of study will include:
- Roles within the ensemble
- Chord chart/lead sheet realization
- Melodic interpretation and articulation
