Adult Jazz 360 Improv & Combo Class

Saturdays, 9/5 – 1/16. 12:30PM – 2:30PM

Our adult jazz workshops are perfect for music educators, amateur musicians, and classically trained musicians who want to gain vocabulary, improve their skill progression, practice improvisation skills, and expand their current repertoire.

All Adult workshops are 2 hours in length. The Improvisation aspect from 12:30-1:30 PM is taught by Professor Gary Matsuura, who has perfected instruction in improvisation over 27 years. He gives musicians, young and not-so-young, beginners and experienced, the keys to every jazz artist’s journey through jazz. The Combo class from 1:30-2:30 PM will be taught by one of our talented faculty members.

Please bring a notepad, writing utensil, and your instrument to class.
