I'm excited to be running an online workshop "Improvisation Games"on Nov 1, 2020, geared towards teachers looking for new exercises for their students, beginner/intermediate jazz students – and of course, classically trained musicians wanted to branch out into jazz and improv!
And really, anyone can attend – no experience needed!
It is a joint effort with bassist Jodi Proznick and myself – through our online music education site www.MusicArtsCollective.com
If you're interested, see the post below for more info:
Join award-winning jazz artists/educators Jodi Proznick (M.Ed) & Amanda Tosoff (MA in Music Theory) for upcoming workshop, “Improvisation Games.” In this online workshop, Jodi & Amanda will share their favourite fun and engaging improvisation exercises (aka “Games!”) – which explore important concepts for developing improvisation skills such as ear training, applied harmony, modes, rhythm, blues riffs and phrasing.
Our games include:
“Painting by Numbers”
“Rhythm & Riffs”
The workshop is lecture style, but you are encouraged to bring your instrument and/or your voice to try the activities in real time from the comfort of your own space.
Date: Nov 1, 2020 @ 12:30 PST (3:30 EST)
