Fri 5 - Mon 8 August 2016
Tutor: Tim Richards

Standard: Advanced, Diploma

Following the success of last year’s course, Tim Richards returns in 2016 with a repeat of his course, now with an extra day. As a contributor to the syllabus and jazz examiner since 1999, jazz pianist Tim Richards is the ideal person to run courses that de-mystify the mechanics of playing jazz, in a style that enables it to be passed from teacher to pupil. The course examines the syllabus (grades 1-5) in detail, giving insight into the skills required for candidates and how to teach them. Help will be given with interpretation, improvisation, and the basics of jazz theory and harmony. No previous experience of jazz is required. Participants will also receive a ticket for the concert given by the Tim Richards Trio on Friday 5 August.


Resident: £390 Non-Resident: £300 Code: 16/336


Venue: Benslow Music, Hitchin, Hertfordshire SG4 9RB.
