JAZZ IMPROVISATION CAMP
How creative are you each time you play your instrument?
Are you truly free when you improvise?
How often do we actually improvise and play ideas that we've never played before?
Open your mind and let the music guide you while attending this Jazz Improvisation Camp prepared to explore your music creativity.
Musical improvisation is much harder than it seems. It takes a combination of talent, confidence, flow, ingenuity, and intuitiveness to successfully and gracefully pull off a freestyle. Many of the greats are able to improvise almost effortlessly, but of course, this ability requires practice and dedication.
At this present time, we at F2F Music Foundation are very concerned about the stress and uneasiness the COVID-19 situation is imposing our our young people; including the music students who are unable to play their instruments together with their friends at school during band rehearsals, at sporting events, concerts, ceremonies, etc.
To promote healing for our young musicians, F2F Music Foundation is offering an online version of our Jazz Improvisation Summer Camp. Each day, we will host a presentation by a professional Jazz artist who will demonstrate their skill and improvisation techniques. A donation of any size is all that we ask.
