Hot Jazz/Swing Workshop: Responsive Playing Techniques To Grow Your Musicianship & Have More Fun Playing

...................SUNDAY JULY 2nd.....................Noon-1:30PM........................$30/$25 (Student).........

Fresh from the XEROX ROCHESTER INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL, Cynthia Sayer will show you how to connect and respond musically to a tune and/or fellow players on numerous levels, whether you are a new or longtime player. Grow your musicianship and have a richer, more fun experience playing accompaniment and solos.

Accompaniment topics will include:

Ø Strumming – there’s much more to it than you may think!
Ø How to support, add to and react to whatever is going on at the moment while maintaining a groove.

Soloist topics include:

  • Ø Creating a “musical conversation.”
  • Ø Where to look for musical ideas, dissecting aspects to respond to.
  • Ø Tastefulness.

We will also identify what creates musical intrusion and disruption.

*All playing levels are welcome. Cynthia Sayer is a 4-string jazz banjoist. Other fretted instrument players with an interest in jazz are also welcome*
