I’m back from a week at the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops in Louisville Kentucky. My third year. I will be back next year.
This year I interviewed “successful” campers.
What characteristics do successful adult Jazz students possess? Here are my unscientific conclusions.
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted percussionist and drum teacher.
