Jazz Skills Workshop
2-6 October, 2013
Zürich International School
Host - Tracy Sons
Workshop leaders: Dave Beckstead and Jim Yarnell
The Jazz Skills Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Honor Jazz Festival at Zürich International School.
Open for priority applications for Honor Jazz auditions who were not selection accepted for the Jazz Skills Workshop. After May 19 applications for unused places in the workshop will be open to the general membership.
The Jazz Skills Workshop is designed to familiarise musicians on any instrument (including voice) and of all ability levels, with the knowledge and skills necessary to learn to play and improvise in the Jazz idiom. Space for rhythm players is limited. Students will learn the theory and style characteristics of this art form in a master class and small ensemble environment. A wealth of materials for further study and practice are included. The three day workshop culminates with an informal performance by small groups of a selection from “standard” Jazz repertoire. It will not be possible to offer the vocal component of the Jazz Skills Workshop this year. Only applicants who are instrumentalists will be able to attend this year's workshop. - posted 13 May, 2013
