Details

Full for piano

* What is it *
rehearse live with others over a 4.5 hour session, taking turns to call your favourite tunes

* Who's it for *
a chance to focus on more nuanced aspects of playing - listening, responding, communicating, building the sound together

As a rough guide, you'd be expected to have played 30+ jazz standards, be comfortable following the form / comping / improvising. New members welcome

* What it's like *
a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, free to take risks and finding inspiration and making mistakes along the way

* How does it work *
please sign up before attending

Will assume you can make the full session (12.30pm-5pm), but otherwise let me know for either 12.30pm-3pm or 2.30pm-5pm

* Tunes *
choose fairly well known jazz standards
e.g. https://www.hopestreetmusicstudios.com/articles/100-must-know-jazz-tunes

You're free to choose from outside them, but if most others haven't heard/played the song we may skip to another

If calling a song, make sure to know it well and be familiar with at least a few recorded versions

Singers: please know what key you'd like to call a song

* Equipment *
there is a piano, drum kit (no cymbals), bass and guitar amps, stands, and microphones. Drummers: please bring cymbals (or can be rented for £8)

any questions do get in touch!
