The Sitka Jazz Workshop is a multi-age, intensive jazz program. Join professional bassist Christian Fabian, recording artist and bass player with the Lionel Hampton Big Band, and other world-class jazz faculty. During Sitka Jazz Workshop you will learn jazz basics and jazz stars’ secrets: how to swing, how to sing, how to scat, improvisation on jazz piano, drums, bass, guitar, vibraphone, and all wind instruments. They will also show you how to compose jazz, how to make a jazz arrangement out of any melody, how to arrange jazz trios, quartets, 10 piece and big band music and much more. You will learn how to play jazz better and have more fun doing it when you finish this week, no matter what level you’re at—beginner, experienced player, professional musician or teacher. If you’re a current elementary, middle or high school teacher, Sitka Jazz Workshop classes can add effective new ideas and techniques to your jazz pedagogy.
