If you are a serious musician looking to define and develop your individual sound and style, our Jam Sessions program is perfect for you.
Performers of all ages are taught the fundamentals of improvisation, made popular by the language of the definitive American art form, Jazz, where a singer or instrumentalist invents melodies and lines over a chord progression played by rhythm section instruments (piano, guitar, double bass) and accompanied by drums.
Jam Sessions is facilitated by top professional Atlanta-area musicians in a small group setting. Students learn to solo, which is the ultimate expression as a musician. When soloing, the singer or instrumentalist invents melodies and lines that fit the key and style of the music simultaneously. Students solo in a variety of styles, from Jazz, rock, funk, r&b, hip hop, and the blues. During a solo, the performer who is playing the solo is the main focus of the audience's attention. For serious musicians of any style, soloing is a must learn technique.
Jam Sessions meet once a week for 45 minutes in length. This class is open to all students with prior experience on their instrument.
