Listening to JAZZ!

6:00p.m. to 7:30p.m.
Chatterbox Jazz Club
Chatterbox Jazz Club at 435 Mass Ave
Indianapolis US

Indianapolis is blessed with an amazingly rich and vibrant jazz scene, scores of live venues and some truly talented jazz musicians. Live jazz performances can be a dense and sometimes incomprehensible experience. In this class we will learn how to take the mystery away, leaving only raw enjoyment of America's art music by illuminating the jazz approach to music-making and give you some listening tools that will help make sense of the experience. Then, you can put your ears to work by checking out a live jazz performance afterwards. Bring questions about jazz music and a friendly reminder you must be 21+ to attend. Staying for the jazz performance afterwards is optional and will be from 8-9 PM.

Bring one of the following:
3 packets of heirloom seeds for my garden (I try to spend an hour a day tending my garden)
a package of organic whole bean coffee to get the creative juices flowing every morning
a spiral bound notebook of staff paper to write new musical ideas on
an album/CD that inspires you as a musician! (I love hearing new music. What band or album ALWAYS gets you musically inspired?)
dark organic chocolate for those raging chocolate cravings
new wide mouth canning jars - quart or pint - for canning (I’m known to bring canned salsa & pickles to potlucks all year round!)
