Learn How to “Play-A-Long” from NEA Jazz Legend, Jamey Aebersold

Jamey had so much fun at the first jam session, he decided to host another clinic! The last one is scheduled for Saturday, January 27 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. This is different from the drop-in workshop. Instead, this clinic is for aspiring players to improve their musicianship and learn how to play and improvise with jazz.

Aebersold is best known for his “Play-A-Longs” which he created in 1967 with the original title, “A New Approach to Jazz Improvisation.” The “Play-A-Longs” have grown to 133 volumes and supplemental books and CDs that Aebersold has successfully marketed globally. Selling more than 5 million “Play-A-Longs” worldwide created a 50 year career in music education and publishing.

For over 40 years, Aebersold has directed the Summer Jazz Workshops throughout the country and across the globe in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, England, Scotland, Denmark and Canada. This two hour event is a mere taste of what it’s like to participate in his week-long camp.

Bring your instruments and music stands, and Jamey will supply the instructional materials! Open to all skill levels. No RSVP required.
