SUMMER SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN

August 6, 7, 8 (10 - 3 all three days) A three day jazz summer school for young musicians aged 10 - 16. At MILES AHEAD Summer School young musicians will work in small groups with our talented and experienced musician/tutors in sessions focusing on improvisation, small group collaborative music making and jazz techniques. The course is aimed at young musicians who have some facility with their instrument and basic music reading skills but little or no experience of playing jazz or improvising. EXPERIENCE OF JAZZ OR INSTRUMENT GRADES ARE NOT ESSENTIAL The Summer School will provide a supportive but challenging environment in which children can gain confidence in their own musical judgement and imagination. They will explore ways of using melodic, rhythmic and textural improvisation in small band settings. They will also explore learning and playing music by ear as well as how to express themselves by developing arrangements and improvisations on written scores.
