South Devon Youth Jazz, in association with the Teignmouth Jazz Festival, are extremely fortunate to be able to present a jazz workshop and masterclass led by leading jazz educator and trombonist MARK BASSEY.
Mark has been involved with jazz education for many years, teaching trombone and running classes in harmony, improvisation, composition and arranging at many leading music colleges including the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Royal Academy of Music and Trinity College of Music.
This workshop is for any under 18s who have been playing their instruments for a little while but would like to learn more about the fun and exciting world of jazz and improvisation.
Whatever your ability level, please come along and join in what promises to be a fun-packed event of music making!
Supporting Mark are our regular brass and woodwind tutors Sam Massey and Jade Gall, who are both experienced local jazz educators and performers (working with highly regarded jazz educators including Issie Barrat, Nick Malcolm, Tom Green, Andy Tweed and Andy Nowak).
In addition, as rhythm section tutors we are fortunate to be joined on this occasion by jazz pianist Lewis Riley (former jazz course director at Dartington International Summer School and associate lecturer at Dartington College of Arts), bassist Jim Rintoul and drummer Kevin O’Rourke (currently drum tutor at Millfield School amongst others).
Please bring your instrument and any other equipment required to play it (e.g. leads, amplifiers, sticks etc.) and just turn up!
