Jazz Improvisation Workshop with Mike HallWe welcome Mike Hall, head of Jazz Studies at the RNCM in Manchester, for a two day jazz improvisation workshop. This course is open to beginner, intermediate and advanced improvisers. No matter your current level we here at JazzSmart are convinced that Mike’s structured and well thought out approach to improvising will allow you to break free from your constraints to improvise more freely than before. Perfect for people who would like to improvise but haven’t had the courage before to do so. Mike will have you on the road to improvising and enjoying jazz as a participant rather than a spectator.
