Instrumentalists and vocalists of all playing levels are welcome in this class. Learn the fundamentals of improvising, arranging, and ensemble playing in a comfortable, low-pressure group environment. Play, listen to, and create music in new and exciting ways. This course combines formal music instruction with learning-by-doing using jazz and popular music. Although no audition is required, ensemble members need to be able to read music and have use of personally owned or rented instruments. This ensemble is a great way to be involved in music-making outside of traditional lessons and ensembles, while at the same time working within a structured and nurturing environment.
