CCJA Summer Institute Week 1: 6/7-6/12

Rhythm Workshop Monday-Friday 4:30-6:00pm 

The Rhythm Workshop  is open to students ages 12-adult on any instrument. 

Led by a professional jazz musician on CCJA's faculty (TBD), students in this workshop will focus in on one of the most essential musical elements, RHYTHM. Rhythm permeates everything in jazz it's an essential ingredient in the music. Makes sense we should pay some attention to it, right? This group will explore rhythm throuh the lenses of phrasing, improvisation, syncopation, groove, polyrhythm, and will examine rhythm's role in musical collaboration and in the jazz idiom.

This group is limited to 8 participants and is open for any instrument or voice.

Instruments such as piano, bass amps, guitar amps, drum sets, vibraphones, and auxilary percussion are provided on-site.
