GYPSY JAZZ FIDDLE

Saturday, June 4th 4:45-5:45pm $15 | Ben Hunter

(this is a drop-in class, no registration is required)

Learn the basics of Gypsy Jazz.  We'll discuss some of the characteristic of the genre, and explore a few songs to help us develop those chops.  Due to Django's hand, he had to reinvent his approach to music, thereby creating new harmonic structures.  With that said, much of this music requires a basic knowledge of theory, but if you don't have that, no worries, we can break that down fairly easily.  This class is for beginner and intermediate players.
