Jazz workshop and concert
Sat 14 Apr - 10.00 am-10.00 pm
St Barnabas Church
Learn how to sing jazz and have fun!
Join Steph Pirrie and Tim Lapthorn for a fun and educational day of singing classic jazz songs in harmony in the beautiful setting of St Barnabas Church in Jericho Oxford. Absolutely no need to read music we will teach you everything by ear on the day. The emphasis will be on having fun and learning more about jazz rythmns and harmonies and how jazz musicians work together to create improvised music.
Later in the evening we’ll be transforming St Barnabas into our very own jazz club for a special evening concert featuring the Tim Lapthorn Trio, Steph Pirrie on Vocals, and you! We’ll be performing some of the songs we’ve learned throughout the day.
