The Jazz Co op have also announced details of their weekend jazz workshop 1-2 August at the Globe - an opportunity for anyone who plays a bit of jazz and wants to get better ... a whole weekend of listening and playing in the company of others who want to learn and improve jazz skills.
The weekend workshop has been developed following the success of the monthly Play Jazz! afternoon workshops held at Sage Gateshead. The weekend format will give participants the time and space to learn more and develop further. There’s also a great gig on the Saturday night and the opportunity to jam with professional musicians. The tutors are James Birkett and Judith Thompson, two superb musicians and highly respected jazz educators. The workshop is suitable for all instruments and a range of abilities. Vocalists are welcome. Minimum age 16. For much of the weekend the participants will be divided into two groups – beginner/intermediate and intermediate/advanced. You’ll be able to improvise and interact with other musicians in an informal supportive situation.
The weekend workshop costs £82. This includes all tuition and free admission to the Jazz.Coop gig on Saturday evening featuring the Williams – Tanton Quartet. There is an additional optional charge of £16 for the provision of two buffet lunches and tea/coffee breaks. Overnight accommodation is not included. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what instrument you will be bringing. We’ll email you with details of how to pay.
