Learn the art of playing in a jazz combo from one of Rochester’s premier jazz pianists! Mambo Kings’ Richard DeLaney guides students through classic jazz repertoire, learning original arrangements, and creating new versions of classic and contemporary songs. Combos are formed with students of compatible ages and abilities and open to strings, piano, woodwinds, guitar, electric bass, and percussion players. Reading skills and the ability to sight-read are necessary.
