Jazz Workshop

Calling all musicians! If you are looking for a way to energize your music and increase your knowledge, we have the workshop for you! Whether you are playing for yourself, with friends, at gigs, or to screaming mobs, you will benefit from this Jazz Workshop with Maestro Rocco John Iacovone.

Rocco returns to Talkeetna to once again share his love of music and art with the Northern Susitna Valley! This is an opportunity for anyone who loves playing music. Whether you are paper trained or don’t read music at all, you will learn to listen, respond, and gel with your fellow jazz orchestra players and the result will be a bigger and better musical toolbox for you to take into the future.

This two week workshop will meet July 15, 17, 18, 22, and 24, from 4:30-7:30pm, with a final rehearsal on July 26, 6:30-9:00pm. There will be a performance on Saturday, July 27 at 7:00pm.
