Hideaway now offers a weekly Jazz Workshop sponsored by the Dordogne Jazz Summer School, All abilities are welcome!
Take on 2013 with a spirited Jazz Jam Workshop and improve on your skills, both solo and as part as a group. As always, newcomers shouldn't feel that they have to attend every week - please come along whenever you can! New participants are always welcome and those who dip in and out will also find the sessions very productive.
Saxophone – Duncan Eagles
Piano – Ralph Lewars
Acoustic / Electric Bass – Max Luthert
Drums – Eric Ford
The main focus on the sessions will be on learning how to play and phrase the melodies and how to tackle improvising over the changes. Vocalists are welcome and for tunes with lyrics please bring them with you. For tunes without lyrics charts will be made for vocalists with vocal parts to sing along with.
Time will be spent looking at getting each song up to “gigging standard”. We will be looking at how to perform the tunes. Counting in the band, who solos where and in what order, how to start and end the pieces and all other things you need to know to perform these tunes on a gig.
