The Richmond Big Band provides the opportunity for experienced jazz students to develop their ensemble playing and ability to improvise. The Band will include full rhythm section, saxophones and brass.
The tutor scheduled to teach this course is Henry Lowther.
You can enrol directly online or in person at reception.
This course is not suitable for beginners. You should be able to read well and to have some ability at improvising. If you have played in a jazz style ensemble before, this would be an advantage. We will be looking for drums, bass, guitar, piano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, trumpets and trombones
The band will play jazz big band standards from the repertoire and the tutor(s) will endeavour to tailor the parts to the abilities of different learners in different sections. Players will have the chance to improvise (though not compulsory) and to develop their skills at improvising over changes with a large band. You will develop your ensemble playing and ability to approach this music in an idiomatic way.
The band will give some regular performances at RACC and possibly other venues too.
