Adult Jazz Ensemble

Age 18+

Learn to improve your knowledge of jazz repertoire and improvisation in this evening ensemble. We'll focus on the most often played jazz and great American songbook standards while listening and playing together. These songs will make it possible for you to go to open jam sessions and quickly connect with other jazz players of your skill level.

Adult Jazz Ensembles will meet for 8 sessions.  There will be two separate ensembles one will meet for 2 hours on Tuesday evenings and the other will meet for 2 hours on Wednesday evenings (one exception:   The Wednesday ensemble will meet on Thursday, July 11 instead of Wednesday, July 10.)

To enroll: all levels of ensemble experience are welcome. Players should have at least intermediate instrumental skills.
