New semester of classes at the jazz center
Consider joining a combo and learn how to perform classic jazz compositions while being guided by one of the VJC's professional faculty. If you've never improvised, that's no problem. There are opportunities for all including classical musicians intrigued by jazz's structure and improvisational opportunities.
Sessions are 10 weeks long (except for Youth Jazz which is eight weeks and will begin on Feb. 26). The classes will culminate in a concert on May 10 at the VJC. Prices and starting dates are listed below and at vtjazz.org. Sessions are $250 (excepting Latin Jazz which is $200 and Youth Jazz which is $100). Visit vtjazz.org for further information.
