Brooklyn Music School Jazz Week Intensive


This week-long intensive class for intermediate and above musicians aged 10 and up focuses on honing skills for improvisation and small group playing. Participants will explore the world of jazz improvisation and ensemble playing as they develop their abilities to hear jazz, learn basic scales and chords, build a jazz vocabulary for improvisation, and become familiar with harmonic devices to give them the keys to a new world of musical self-expression.

Led by veteran jazz musician and BMS Jazz Department head Jeff Newell
