IN PERSON: The goal of this course is for participants to become aware of the many types of jazz performers and venues in our area. By the end of the course, participants will be able to identify jazz venues and key performers as well as navigate the jazz scene, and will have broadened their knowledge of this vital musical genre. The Locavore Jazz website will be used as a key resource to identify venues, performers and upcoming performances. This course will include visits from at least five key local jazz performers and educators who will discuss their work and whose music we will hear. Participants will also visit at least two local jazz education venues, learn how one or more instruments are played and possibly have a local jazz podcast recorded live in class. The instructor will also offer select extracurricular visits to lesser-known venues. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
