Pop Big Band 2015

Pop Big Band – 2 Day Workshop (October 26th/27th 2015) *** ONLY £90 ***

We are pleased to welcome back James Rawlinson and James Stead to host another exciting JazzSmart Workshop in October this year. James Stead (Swing Unlimited Big Band, The Dual) will be bringing along his latest arrangements of modern pop standards (Kool and the Gang, Bruno Mars, Blues Brothers, Stevie Wonder etc). James Rawlinson (Red Fez Orchestra, JRQ, The Regular Joes) will also be on hand concentrating on the brass section. We will be working over the two days to produce a set to be performed on the final afternoon.

This 2 day Pop Big Band workshop is for all ages (minimum Grade 3 standard playing ability). Vocalists, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, and Drums. The course will concentrate on improving your reading, arrangement, improvisation and band leading skills, giving you the ability to go away and form your own band.
