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.

 

All instruments and standards are welcome however a basic knowledge of your instrument is required.

Testimonials

We have just left your club and have to say we thought it was just fantastic! Really great venue, great show (Wayne Hernandez), love the bar, good food, great staff and what lovely clientele! Met people and chatted at random, as well as being with a group of friends, and it made a truly enjoyable evening.

Hideaway is a real treasure of South London, we live in Norbury and can’t wait to come back. 

Thank you for running this superlative gig.
