Class Info

Whether you have already attended some of Portland's various Gypsy Jazz Jams or would like to in the future, this class will prepare/aid you in many ways.

Tracy Kim has hosted the GJJW (Gypsy Jazz Jam Workshop) for over 5 years.

In this class, Tracy will focus on the following topics:

   - Jam session etiquette
   - Core repertoire for Gypsy Jazz
   - Following and understanding song forms(how not to get lost!)
   - Trading twos, fours, eights
   - Building lick repertoire and some easy soloing tricks and concepts written in Tracy's various études (will be passed out in class)
   - Connecting the dots: we will take some common song forms and progressions and demonstrate how they can applied to countless other tunes!
   - How to sight read charts(learn to analyze quickly and simplify/memorize tunes)
   - Techniques on learning melodies

This will be a fun class! Great to bring a buddy or meet new folks to jam.
