With KENNY WESSEL
This Guitar Ensemble will work with 4-5 guitarists playing arrangements for guitar. We will focus on important musical skills: playing as a section, blending, phrasing, time feel, soloing, comping, improvisation, in addition to working on a weak point for many guitarists, sight-reading. Charts include arrangements of jazz standards and other repertoire. It’s a great opportunity to experience playing in a section (like a horn section, but stringy). Get ready for a fantastic experience. Like the other workshops this Guitar Ensemble will be performing at jazz venues in NYC!

GENERAL TESTIMONIALS ON THE ONLINE EXPERIENCE
FOR GUITAR ENSEMBLE WORKSHOP
“All of my concerns about having class online were laid to rest once the zoom session with Marc Mommaas started up. All four of us in class could see and hear each other well. Marc provided numerous charts on-screen for us to work with, and we had a metronome and an on-screen backing/practice track that was both visible and easy to hear for extra support. It was as close to having an in-person class as I could imagine. “ – Matt Craddock
“I just had my first video lesson with NYJW on mixed meters. It was the highlight of my week. While I’ve been occupied with how to stock up on supplies and worried dearly about my loved ones, I was able to take an hour and engage with my love of music, engage with an outstanding and passionate teacher, and meet a great musician in Japan. I’m learning, engaged remotely with my community, and – in a very real sense – expanding my world. I cannot recommend virtual music lessons enough. Marc was able to hear my playing clearly and critique my articulation/time. I was introduced to new ideas and given grounding for this new phase in life. Most importantly, the audio and video quality was good. The latency was low enough that I was able to play along with Marc during the example exercises and follow him. For me this was critical in being able to bridge the gap and bring the lesson to life. I strongly encourage anyone to try it out!!” – John Dalto
“I did not realize how much fun it could be to join the online program at the NYJW. My classmate where all online with the instruments and the instructor had charts, a metronome and backing tracks on hand. I learned a lot in just one session!” – MC
“A lesson via zoom was seamless! I was surprised how easy it was to share the material online, play along together w iReal Pro as an ensemble. I walked away with plenty of material to work on – this is a really worthwhile experience” – James Kibbe
