Intro to Jazz Improvisation is expertly lead by Bassist Joseph Lepore and Drummer Vito Lesczak. This ongoing course offers a path for musicians to enter the world of jazz improvisation. In a welcoming and non-judgmental environment, participants will be encouraged to play and improvise. Joseph and Vito will alternate as session leaders giving the students the unique opportunity to work in-depth on improvisation techniques and rhythmic tools to connection with the rhythm section. It is a wonderful and warmhearted environment. Get ready to get into the music with like minded spirits.
Twice per year participants will have the opportunity to perform a showcase at Smalls jazz club or another jazz venue around town.
