We are pleased to welcome Dar Mar-Molinero to host the return of the fun and exciting POP Big Band Workshop in November this year.

Alongside composing and performing, he is a lecturer in Jazz & Popular Music at the University of Southampton, a tutor for the NYJC and runs the pioneering youth jazz organisation, SYJO. Dan will be bringing along his latest arrangements of classic and modern pop standards. He will be working alongside James Rawlinson; Dorset & Hampshire based saxophonist and educator, who will also be on hand to help out.
We will be working over the two days to produce a set to be performed informally for friends, family and guests.

The course will concentrate on improving your reading, arrangement, improvisation and band leading skills, giving you the ability to go away understanding more about the inner workings of the Big Band.
