10 weeks plus performance
For players who can play scales, learn parts by ear and do simple improvisations or who can read and want to be part of a horn section. These 10-week student bands will rehearse and perform a 40-minute set of material, under the direction of a Blue Bear instructor. If you can be independent on your horn without need for guidance on how to solo and fit in with the band, any of the workshops will work. For those newer to band playing, Jim Peterson’s Basic workshops are recommended. Cost: $395.
Private lessons in saxophone, flute and clarinet can begin anytime.
