2020 SAJE in the Summer Program

There will be a one-time virtual camp day on Wednesday, July 8th. Multiple half hour sessions will take place throughout the afternoon and each lab session has a different emphasis. See schedule below:

  • 2pm Listening Lab Session
    • Participants will have a chance to hear a selected artist’s song from a famous jazz album. I will lead a brief discussion. (Instruments not required)
  • 2:30pm BREAK
  • 3pm Improvising Lab Session
    • Participants will learn a basic element of soloing vocabulary and play in a call and response format.
  • 3:30pm BREAK
  • 4pm Jamming Lab Session
    • Participants will experiment with incorporating what they have learned into a real-time performance! Some instructions and parameters will be given prior.
  • 4:40pm Q and A session and wrap up


ALL OF THE ABOVE LAB SESSIONS ARE BEING OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE – just make sure you register for the ones you want with admin@spokaneallcityjazz.org. Once we have your
information, ZOOM invite links will be sent the week of the workshop.

Thank you all so much for your patience. I am looking forward to seeing, hearing, and enjoying the joy of jazz with you again!
