T12 Introduction to Improvisation

Ben Creighton Griffiths

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

No prior experience of jazz or improvisation is required for this fun and easy introduction to jazz improvisation. We will start at the absolute basics, and focus on getting some confidence with the playing, with only a light touch on the theory behind it all. This class is ideal for someone wanting to try something new and different at a relaxed pace. We will also look at different jazz styles, such as blues, traditional swing, bossa nova, and more. This class is suitable for all ages, levels, and types of harp and as we are improvising – there’s no such thing as wrong notes!
