There’s a new Jazz Experience program at the Detroit School of Rock and Pop.
According to the school’s website, “Utilizing their unique ability to provide meaningful mentorship and instruction combined with unparalleled real-world experiences, the program will consist of weekly rehearsals, recording opportunities, concerts, events, and even their own television specials. Small group training will be the initial focus, with an emphasis on developing improvisation skills. Students will also have opportunities to compose their own material and premiere their works at concerts. "People see our logo and think that we are all tattoo'd guitar players, but actually my personal training was in Jazz Studies," says school founder Jason Gittinger. "We have tons of talent and experience here on our staff that goes beyond rock and pop music. This was our next logical step to continue to provide the best music training in the region."”
Tuition charges will be $149 per month and the groups will meet on Saturdays. Students are encouraged to contact the school office to set up an audition as space for the program is limited.
