    Spring Workshop

    2-5pm

    NYC

    On Saturday, March 12, jazz pianist/composer Kevin Hays will conduct a workshop open to all instrumentalists interested in developing their harmonic sense, line playing, and overall improvisational skills. The workshop will take place in New York City, between 2-5pm.

    Bringing together over 25 years of performing and recording experience with artists such as Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Bill Stewart, and Nicholas Payton, Hays presents clear and practical exercises and instruction to students of all levels and instruments.

    These intimate classes provide an opportunity to play, ask questions, problem solve, and discuss any musical issues students wish to bring forward.

    Topics include:

    • Harmonic development on standards and originals
    • Voice leading through progressions and in soloing
    • Rhythm and phrasing – "Demystifying Swing"
    • Creating new voicings spontaneously
    • Melodic and inventive line playing – breaking free of patterns and ‘licks’
    • Dealing with 'performer's nerves'
    • The art of developing a solo

    Places are limited and these workshops fill up quickly. Registration and pre-payment are required. Email info@kevinhays.com for more information.
