Once a month a group of students get together for jazz instruction with David Friesen. Unlike private lessons, this is a chance to learn how to play with a group. How to listen...how to lead...how to accompany.
All levels of experience are welcome - you should be able to play your instrument competently, and have a grasp of a 12-bar blues. To prepare, practice the songs listed below. Learn the form, be familiar with the changes, listen to the performances.
On the day of the ensemble training, show up - and relax! You might be nervous, but it really is a lot of fun!
June 21 is cancelled. We'll post new dates shortlyCharts: Print out the chart from the "Play, transpose, etc" link - or purchase a copy of The Real Book: Sixth Edition. Here are links to purchase from Amazon.com or Powell's
