Do you like Jazz and want to learn more about it? Join us for an introduction to one of the world’s greatest art forms. In ‘Jazz-A Beginners Guide’, we’ll help you develop your ears to hear the many details and intricacies that make this music so endlessly fascinating. We will also guide you through the history of the various styles – Trad, Dixieland, New Orleans, Modern, Bebop and West Coast – to name a few. We have access to a very good wi-fi at The Reef and hope to use YouTube videos as well as CDs and BBC Sounds this year.

Our convenor is a Lecturer, Bournemouth Big Band Swing & Jazz Club Programme Secretary and erstwhile jazz guitarist. He will provide your introduction to jazz; no musical knowledge required
