VegasNorthU SOP Winter 2018
Intermediate Big Band
VegasNorthU is thrilled to kick off the 2018 Season with our new, popular performance class series.
The “VegasNorthU Intermediate Big Band Ensemble” in Toronto, ON is designed for musicians who
would like to learn/play many styles that Big Bands perform while working on reading and soloing.
This fun ensemble will run for 12 weeks.

Our Band Performance classes focus on teaching the intermediate musicians
how to handle and be prepared for real life big band/jazz band situations when they arise,
how to play with and in a section, backing vocalists, individual responsibilities,
sight reading, ensemble techniques and the overall protocol of playing in a band.

This is a great chance for mature adults to get together and have fun,
students getting ready for school and players in ensembles/bands already
brush up their skills and become better “SUBS”.
As a band leader, I see many players who pass through my pro bands that
just don’t quite have the experience or skills to be considered a “Good Sub”.
These workshops are designed to help musicians gain that experience
and to better their sight reading confidence so they can be considered for and excel in other ensembles.

Trumpet, Trombone, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax,
Drums and Percussion spots are open
So... if you wish to register this January...
please reach us and we will fit you in.

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 retired seniors **intermediate & advanced
