Bebop, or bop, is more than just a fun-sounding word -- it refers to music that was pioneered by innovators Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Max Roach, and Tadd Dameron.
Join us for a week of bop! You'll learn from BMS Jazz and Rock Ensemble Coordinator Russ Gershon, as well as your fellow students, aged 13 to adult. In this workshop, you'll learn the fundamental tunes appropriate to your playing level, and begin to improvise. At the end of the week, students will perform a recital.
Bebop Week is open to students with 2 years of private lessons or ensemble experience, or with instructor permission.
