The Jazz Kiln is a series of six weekly jazz improvisation workshops that offers a safe place for musicians of all ages to explore and expand their musical horizons. This series will be directed by noted jazz educator, composer, and pianist Eddie Mendenhall. Instructor and professional bassist, Dan Robbins, will also teach this series of the Jazz Kiln. The final night of class students have the opportunity to join the instructors and special guests onstage. Friends and family are welcome to attend this evening performance.
Eddie believes that you can learn the jazz language by studying the history of jazz (listen!) and pursuing an enjoyable dedication to your instrument. Each student may have a different path to proficiency on the instrument, but improvising is always about your ears and how you communicate your instincts, feelings, and meaning in performance. These workshops are intended to help music students find their jazz voice, expressing themselves with confidence through improvisation and understanding their role within an ensemble.
