The Great American Song Book 3 SUNDAYS, JULY 14, 21 & 28, 12 PM

The Great American Songbook is a collection of tunes written from 1930 to 1950 and is a vital part of the repertoire of jazz musicians. While many songs by the Gershwins, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin are well known, there are countless other composers and lyricists whose songs are not performed as often. This 3-part workshop focuses on these less frequently performed pieces.

Workshop time includes listening to re–corded examples by jazz greats to develop ideas for new arrangements. Instructor Maye Cavallaro provides 10 lead sheets for songs including practice-backing tracks. An accompanist joins the group during the third session, for students to perform arrangement ideas.
