Designed expressly as a music enrichment program for grades K-12, “Adventures with Jazz” gives both concerts and improvisation clinics that are age-appropriate. This polished jazz quartet illustrates the creative process of improvisation in an engaging and interactive manner. The quartet is made up of reeds, keyboard, bass, and drums. As we demonstrate the individual instruments’ role in the music, our program explores the “storytelling”, conversational and emotional aspects of improvisation, all in a very compelling and at times, humorous way. Each of the players develops a relationship with the students through interaction with them and the other band members.
