Event description

Description

Simon Currie currently plays saxophone for The Manfreds but has played alongside musical legends such as Stevie Wonder, George Benson, Mel Tormé, The Four Tops, Donna Summer and many more.

Simon will reveal the secrets of improvising and how to confidently play solos that sound great! Explore the magic of the pentatonic scale and how to use ‘approach notes’ to make your solos sound jazzier.

This workshop is ideal for beginners to intermediate players, for those who have never improvised before or have limited experience improvising. More seasoned improvisers will pick up useful tips from Simon's unique approach to improvisation.

The idea of improvising in front of other people scares a lot of musicians. Our workshops create a relaxed environment with like-minded musicians so that you can play confidently - you decide how much you want to get involved!
