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.
A placement audition is required and will consist of sight-reading, selected scales in 2-4 octaves from all major and minor keys, and a performance of a prepared selection. Audition dates TBA. Please call (585) 454-4596 to schedule your audition time.
Fee: $10 registration fee; $90* tuition; $72 if enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein. (Fees are as of Summer 2020.)
