ALL EARS – Jazz and Improvisation Workshops >> Coming to Ara in January 2018
Ara Music Arts are excited to be partnering with the ‘All Ears’ team to bring this unique week of workshops to New Zealand in January 2018.
This week-long program is a great opportunity for musicians of any age and ability. It provides participants a format to explore jazz and improvised music in a fun, safe and nurturing environment, while focusing on developing improvisation skills in the time-honored tradition of the jazz greats: learning by ear.
“All Ears is a jazz and improvised music program designed by veteran US educators Dr. Arthur Falbush and Keith Pray. With 14 years of collaborating on many educational programs and with over 50 years of combined teaching experience, All by Ear is an evolution of the original method of learning jazz (by ear).
Jazz musicians since the earliest days of the music learned to play by imitating other musicians.
All Ears takes this concept into an educational environment and provides participants the opportunity to learn how to improve their jazz playing while being supervised by experience jazz musicians and veteran teachers.”
