We're sorry, but this class is over. The last meeting was Monday, February 3, 2020.
(Ages 11-18 and Adult)
These small ensembles provide the opportunity for youth and adult students of all levels and instruments to deepen their knowledge of jazz and develop their skills in a group context. Students are placed in age-appropriate ensembles based on instrument or voice, experience, and availability.
Each group meets weekly with a member of Levine's expert jazz faculty, who coaches the students in studying and playing songs from the standard jazz repertoire, developing their improvisation abilities, and learning to work as a group. Each session culminates in a performance for family and friends during the final class. Students are welcomed and encouraged to enroll for multiple consecutive sessions.
Please note: No audition is required, but students should have at least one year of study on their instrument and basic skills in music-reading, improvisation, and playing from a fakebook. All instrumentalists and vocalists are welcome. Piano, amplifiers, and drumset are provided. Adult students are placed in combos with other adults. For more information, please contact Gary Prince, Jazz Program Chair, at (202) 686-8000 x1016 or email@example.com.
