Women Play Jazz! workshops

Jazz workshops specifically for women led by inspirational tutor Faye MacCalman.

Women Play Jazz! workshops welcome instrumentalists, singers and improvisers of any kind and varying levels including beginners.

These workshops will encourage creativity and development of individual voices through group and solo improvisation with jazz repertoire. We will go on adventurous explorations rooted in the foundations of blues and jazz through ear training, improvisation, playing as an ensemble and working through challenges in a supportive open atmosphere, building confidence, inspiration and fun into our music and approaches.

Faye MacCalman is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and workshop leader, bandleader of award winning Archipelago, who also performs solo and in collaboration with artists who have included Arun Ghosh, Zoe Rahman, The Unthanks and Anna Meredith.

Workshops will be held on Saturday afternoons, 2pm – 5pm, on the following dates. Each one will be different and complete. You are welcome to come to one, some or all of them.
