“Successfully sitting in at a Jazz Jam”
Wednesday, March 11, 2020


In this session Laurie Lang will teach how to successfully sit in at a jazz jam.


Please come with your instrument and/or voice.
We will review and play around with notes you already know, learn to open up our ears with some call and response, and we will keep it FUN, simple, elegant, and cool!


At the end of this short session, you will be ready to take the stage with confidence!


If you want to prepare ahead of time:
  • Learn a blues scale in Concert C: C Eb F Gb G Bb C (Bb instruments: D F G Ab A C D) (Eb instruments: A C D D# E G A);
  • Learn Duke Ellington’s “C-Jam Blues” (obviously in the key of C) (chart below);
  • Learn any other 12-bar blues melody you’d like and the blues scale in that key.
