Introduction to Ensemble Playing: Jazz Beginners at Z-arts, Manchester, 16 May 2019, from £106.13 - Book now

May is going to be an excellent month for live music in Manchester. With the return of the Manchester Jazz Festival, highly skilled local and international jazz musicians will be taking over the city. If you’re no longer satisfied with being a bystander in Manchester’s Jazz scene, but are not quite ready to play at one of the many jams yet, there is Manchester Music Workshop. Based at Z-arts, their Jazz Beginners workshop is informal and welcomes complete jazz novices, providing a space to improvise in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

Develop your playing in an open and friendly space

As a group, you will learn the fundamentals of ensemble playing, pick up musical language from a variety of jazz styles and find your own voice. With expert tuition from saxophonist Kyran Matthews, a well-known face in Manchester’s Jazz scene, you can develop your playing in an open and friendly space.

Whether you’re a keen amateur player or haven’t touched your instrument in years and want to pick it up again, all abilities are welcomed.
