The Advanced Jazz Workshop affords talented high school and college students an opportunity to take their jazz improvisation skills to the next level with a week of both formal and informal tutoring from the nationally renowned Cornish College of the Arts jazz faculty and guest artists. The workshop has been designed for aspiring young musicians already playing with their school's jazz band or orchestra who wish to further develop their improvisational skills under the guidance of seasoned professional jazz musicians. This workshop will give students the opportunity of focusing on three distinctly different jazz styles, Latin, Hard Bop and Contemporary Jazz. Through classroom discussion, listening session and ensemble rehearsal, the workshop will delve into all aspects of the art of jazz improvisation. The week culminates in a Saturday concert featuring student ensembles.
Students already possessing a solid foundation on their instrument and experience playing in a jazz big band or orchestra at their high school. Vocalists as well as instrumentalists should apply.
Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm with a break for lunch, and a concluding performance scheduled for Saturday, July 23rd at 3PM in PONCHO Concert Hall on the Cornish campus.
Open for enrollment to students, ages 14-19, playing at an intermediate or advanced level with an audition for ensemble placement.
