Summer Jazz Workshop


Summer Jazz Workshop

The 2nd Annual SLO Jazz Festival Summer Workshop is a 4 day performance course aimed at students from Junior High through College. Each instrument in traditional jazz ensembles will be represented by a professional musician fluent in that instrument. Each student will be instructed as to the role his/her instrument plays in a jazz ensemble. Students will also be instructed in the importance of competence on their instrument as well as how to dress and come across on the band stand. Stage presence and team spirit will also be covered as well as how to acquire club dates and how to charge for a performance. In other words students will be taught how to make a living as a musician if that’s what the student so chooses.
