Milestones Youth Jazz is pleased to offer a new class that will serve as a “first step” for kids who might be considering getting into jazz. The Intro to Jazz group is for those who want to learn about jazz improvisation while playing different types of jazz in a group setting. It is for students of all ages, from sixth grade through high school.
The group meets Tuesdays from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at the Milestones Facility at 90 E. Escalon Ave, Ste 115 in Fresno.
You can attend the first session at no charge, so there is really no reason not to come and check it out!
HOW TO KNOW IF INTRO TO JAZZ IS RIGHT FOR YOU
It’s the perfect group if you can check at least one of the following boxes:
- I have at least one year of experience on my instrument and I am ready to learn about jazz improvisation.
- I would like to get some jazz experience before joining my middle or high school jazz band.
- I’m already in my middle or high school jazz band, but I’m not that confident when it’s my turn to play a solo.
- I’m just wondering what this jazz thing is all about, and I would like to find out in a more low-key setting without all the pressures of a formal performance.
“Introduction to Jazz” is a great way to build confidence, learn more about jazz in general, and get jazz improvisation experience.
All instruments are welcome. For more information contact the Milestones project director
