For All Instruments--Intermediate to Advanced Level

This will be a weekly class for only six weeks that is focused solely on the same students jamming together on ten specific tunes, all from the gypsyjazz & swing genre.

I will send students, in advance, charts, mp3s, mandolin and guitar chord fingerings for all chords in each chart immediately after you register. You’ll have time to prepare as much as you want, and then the class will simply be a jam session, with a bit of time for me to introduce each tune and add any cool intros, outros, discuss jam etiquette, etc…

Melody, chord accompaniment and improvisation - you don’t have to do all three, but be prepared to do at least one of them in class without too much assistance.
