Holy Names Music Center 3910 W. Custer Dr Spokane, WA 99224

All instruments welcome!

Bring your instrument or voice to play rhythm games, vocal and instrumental Call and Response, sight reading, improvising and group performance, listening assignments, theory and spontaneous composition exercises.

Students will learn songs by ear and via sheet music, and learn various skills to perform and solo in a jazz style. There will be many different classes throughout the day to accommodate different learning styles and to keep students engaged. No previous Jazz experience necessary. Auditions may be conducted to determine whether students would be best assisted by morning or afternoon sessions. Vocal musicians are welcome, but will be expected to act as part of the horn section, improvising and performing via scat syllables. **Covid protocols. Students are expected to use bell covers and instrument masks as recommended by the CDC – and follow 6 ft spacing (or CDC recommended spacing at the time) limiting the number of performers to the room capacity – if possible some activities may be outside.
