Chet Doxas is on faculty at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music where he teaches private students and small ensembles. Chet is a Rico reed artist who’s work can be heard on over eighty recordings, many of which have been nominated for Juno, Grammy and Academy awards.

This Saturday afternoon workshop will focus on how to practice improvisation.

  • Harmony and voice leading
  • Rhythmic modulation and superimposition
  • Composition

In addition to the insights and examples of technique, participants have an opportunity to play along with the visiting professionals leading the workshops! The charts for the workshop have been selected to complement the evening show.

The grand finale is a raffle for a one-hour Skype lesson with the leader of the workshop valued at $100!

 

Do I need to be a musician to attend? Should I bring an instrument? What’s the sound system like?
