This series of hands-on workshops, directed by some of the top Bay Area jazz improvisers, is designed to provide players with a range of techniques for improvising on jazz standards. Get some new tools for your improvisational toolkit and gain a variety of perspectives on jazz improvisation from each of these wonderful musicians. Each session will be directed by a different instructor and focus on a particular jazz standard, including plenty of in-class playing time and Q & A. These workshops are open to all. Suggested prerequisites for those who will play during the session: facility on an instrument and knowledge of jazz theory.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
