Jazz Academy
Introductory Ensemble

Starts January 28, 2015

The best place for the young musician to start learning about Jazz music is the Jazz Academy Introductory Ensemble (JAIE). JAIE is for students who have never played jazz music and would like to learn how to read and play jazz. To be eligible for JAIE, students be at least 8 years of age and must have at least 1 year of study on their instrument. Many students in this group have basic to intermediate classical training and would like to develop jazz music skills. Students will learn and develop improvisational skills and will learn how to read and interpret basic jazz charts. This is a great starting point for those students that are not quite ready for JAE.

Class are every other Wednesday at 5:45pm beginning 1/28/15 at Sligo Middle School; 1401 Dennis Ave; Silver Spring, MD.
