    Park Stickney – Jazz Harp: Fun for All (without any Existential Crises)

    Sat, 10 April 2021 @ 10:00 am Sun, 11 April 2021 @ 5:15 pm BST

    In this virtual, yet hands-on, up-close class, we’ll use a harpful of jazz standards as a means to explore jazz techniques and theory (writ large), and (let’s just say it), some generally interesting musical ideas. Here’s a non-comprehensive list: improvisation, comping, lever/pedal slides, harmonic risk-taking (and risk-management), rhythmic epistemology (don’t panic!), and, judging from this description, “stream-of-consciousness”-hyphen-use combined with a freewheeling approach to punctuation and musical reality. 

    Four sessions:

    • Saturday 10th April, 10:00-11:15
    • Saturday 10th April, 16:00-17:15
    • Sunday 11th April, 10:00-11:15
    • Sunday 11th April, 16:00-17:15
