Durham Jazz is excited to offer a new “Beginner – Learn to play” option for students this fall. We recognize that students between grades 6-9 have had a challenging few years of music instruction, due to Covid-19. In effort to partner with schools and music teachers, we’d like to offer the beginner program that will help students learn the basics of playing while being supported by DJ Staff.
The Beginner Program will focus on:
- Command of instrument
- Basic Theory
- Concepts behind playing in ensembles
- Jazz Fundamentals
- Practice basics
** STUDENTS MUST HAVE ACCESS TO AN INSTRUMENT OF THEIR OWN OR SCHOOL INSTRUMENT TO BRING TO REHEARSALS AND PRACTICE ON DURING THE WEEK. (Note: Pianists and Drummers do not need to bring an instrument to rehearsal)
