Exploring Standards; Weekend Jazz Course with Wayne McConnell
If you are stuck in a rut with what to practice or how to play standards with a more authentic approach? Wayne is offering you the chance to come and work on 3 standards over a weekend in December. Learn the ins and outs of how these three beautiful standards work: Stella By Starlight, In A Sentimental Mood and a I Got Rhythm.
We look at how to construct authentic bebop lines and a method of how to learn the movement between the chords; voice-leading, scale of chords approach, when and how to use chord extensions and much more. It will be a very practical weekend with an informal performance at the end. Limited tickets to please act soon.
When: 11am-4pm Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December 2017
Where: The Brunswick Pub, Hove
Who: Open to all instruments but geared towards people who can already improvise rather than complete beginners.
