Toronto Musicians Wanted
2018 Winter Semester Adult Jazz Band For Beginners
VegasNorthU SOP is excited to host our second annual set of jazz band classes
this January in Toronto, ON, Canada, focusing on teaching the beginner musician
how to play jazz and other styles in a section, their individual listening and playing responsibilities,learning how to back a singer, ensemble techniques and the necessary beginning skills of learning how to read swing and other styles.
This is a great chance for adults to get together and have fun learning the basics of playing jazz while performing in a group.
***For those musicians who have a tough time with reading and are more "Play by Ear" musicians,
don't fret too much if you think that this program may be too advanced
as we can have you solo and learn at your own pace.
Each group will have a performance at the end of their semester.

VegasNorthU School of Performance is for those players who used to play a long time ago
and wish to get back into playing again as well as players who are currently in ensembles/bands
that wish to get more experience and brush up their skills.
Trombone, Trumpet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Bari Sax,
Piano, Guitar and Percussion spots are open
so... if you wish to register, please reach us and we will fit you in.
“Many musicians do not get the opportunity to perform in a band or group since they feel their talent may not be up to par, their work schedules won’t allow the time to dedicate to it
or their auditions do not go as well as hoped when they try out; hence why these classes were designed”
VegasNorthU is designed for the beginner adult musician to have a ton of fun rehearsing great charts. Ensemble blending, timing, stylistic interpretation, reading and balance techniques
is only a few topics covered in our classes.
If the spot that you are requesting is filled, we can fit you into a following semester.
This is a wonderful chance for musicians of any age* to get together and have tons of fun with this style.
*age ranges from 30’s to more mature
