Jazz Jam at the Levine School of Music

  • August 23, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Lang Auditorium

The Levine jazz jam is an opportunity for musicians of any age and proficiency to experience jazz from the inside. In a fun and structured environment facilitated by Levine jazz faculty members, musicians will get a chance to play and improvise on well-known jazz standards.

Jam sessions are a musical environment that everyone regardless of skill level can benefit from and enjoy, and we will have charts (sheet music) on hand so you don't need to worry about being perfectly prepared. All you need to do is come out and play! These jams are $5 at the door (or time of RSVP) for students not currently enrolled in Levine.

This jam will be lead by Andrew Hare (drums) and Pepe Gonzalez (bass). Pepe and Andrew will lead participants through common tunes, ensemble concepts, and jamming. We will have some charts on hand, and students are encouraged to bring their own Real Book!

    Hi Everyone, I am one of the facilitators. Just wanted to let you all know that we will be doing two latin tunes at this session, "My Little Suede Shoes" (concert Eb major) and "Blue Bossa" (concert C minor). Looking forward to seeing you!

      Hi Gary - I just signed up for the Tuesday night jazz combo without being required to pay the $200. Should I just wait for a bill?

      Hi Dave, that must have been the placement form. I think we're all caught up on this, but if we're not, please let me know!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
