"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!"

Demystifying Jazz Rhythms and Articulations for the Classically Trained Flutist

Renae Block, Clinician

Have you ever wondered how jazz musicians create that “swing” feel?  Has playing pop music with the right groove always felt a bit uncomfortable? Have you ever wondered how what’s written on the page can sound so different when it’s played?  Please join us as Renae Block shares some simple tips and tricks of the trade for unravelling the mystery of performing  jazz and pop styles.

This session is for flutists of all ages and abilities and will focus on breaking down the basic elementary fundamentals of jazz rhythms and articulations so that everyone walks away swingin’!  Bring your flutes and get ready to have some fun!

*This event is free for members and $10 for non-members.  

This event will be held online via Zoom. Registrants will be sent the Zoom link and passcode by 1/19/2022 (day of event).
