The students playing in the “Combos” have taken their playing both individually and as a group to a whole new level this past year. First—backing up Bernard Purdie at his workshop at The Oxford—(Bernard raved about the group and several of its members)! And then giving two stellar performances opening for the Alan Jones Sextet this past December as part of the new Mt. Bachelor Riverhouse Jazz series.
The groups are playing exciting and challenging music too--everything from Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington to Chick Corea & Frank Zappa. Please contact me if you are interested. The group meets once a week for 90 minutes and the cost is $25 per class.
Some of you have also asked about private drum or piano lessons. Thank You!! I now have openings for one drum student and also for one piano student. Lessons are typically weekly for 30 minutes and the cost is $35 per lesson.
