John Seeley's Jazz and Saxophone Group
Do you like Jazz music? Do you play the Saxophone?
If playing as part of a group appeals to you, why not join John Seeley’s Jazz and Saxophone Group? I run my own Jazz and Saxophone Workshop every Thursday evening throughout the year at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
We are a relaxed, friendly, welcoming group and are always looking for more members to join our Jazz family!
The aim of this workshop is to provide a creative and relaxed atmosphere for musicians of all levels, to learn theory aspects of music, develop saxophone technique and gain practical knowledge of performing.
The workshop will explore saxophone and musicianship
skills that will enhance the individual and group performer. This includes music theory, methods of
practise, sight reading, improvisation, aural work and specific concepts to
increase your knowledge on the saxophone.
The music used will range from Hard Bop, Modern to Contemporary Jazz, and will be arranged to a high level.
teaching of this workshop focuses on the 4 P's Principle. Posture, Pulse,
Phonology, and Personality within music. The method of teaching will follow a
style called simultaneous learning. The ingredients of pieces are extracted and
worked through by connecting areas of learning as aural, visual, rhythm
and improvisation. These are then placed back into context, allowing the
individual a deep understanding of the piece and its musical principles.
