The Song is YOU

The Song Is You… | Jay Ware
Endless lists of tunes, licks and improvisational material, time and groove stability, diverse styles, reading, coordination, cohesive playing, and the list goes on. These are the things that often consume us and our daily routine. But who are you? This session is dedicated to discovering and (re)defining who you are, what you’re about, and understanding the importance of developing yourself as a person above developing your craft. Because ultimately, the song is… YOU!

This course is recommended for ALL levels and ALL instruments.
