Hi Folks,

happy Holidays! If you are one of those people who always wanted to improvise but didn't know where to start or your were curious about the difference between Jazz and Improvised music or you are just looking for some fun folks to jam with, please check out my pal Victor Bateman's improv workshop below:

Creative Improvisation Workshops
Led by Victor Bateman

Four 3-hour sessions, starting Monday January 7th,
running each Monday in January, from 7 to 10p.m.
Recital February 4th at 8pm.

The focus of the workshop is to encourage musicians to experience the combination of latitude and discipline that distinguishes free improvisation, and to provide them with information about the resources available to them as improvisors. Emphasis is placed on the development of listening skills through playing and the material covered considers music in a comprehensive manner. Open to musicians of all levels and backgrounds, the workshop gives a clearer understanding of the process and a greater appreciation of the art of improvisation.

The workshop is organized into four 3-hour sessions, which culminate in a hour-long recital. The recital is professionally recorded, and copies made available to participants.

Participation is open to musicians at all levels. You should plan on attending all four sessions and playing the recital. Cost is $100 per person. All sessions and recital will be held at Somewhere There, 340 Dufferin St., Toronto.

Presented in affiliation with the Association of Improvising Musicians, Toronto.
