Want to play jazz but never dared? Or already playing jazz and need a boost? Guided by experienced jazz musicians you will learn to improvise in an informal supportive environment.
Suitable for all instruments. You don’t have to read music but you should be able to play all the notes of your instrument with ease. The workshops are held on the first Saturday of each month (except January and August). Each one has a different theme.
