The workshop features all aspects of jazz such as various eras, styles, musicians, groups, and instruments.

Each participant is requested to select a jazz related topic and prepare one or two presentations (depending on workshop size) of 50 minutes, the majority of which will be recorded music. Discussion occurs spontaneously during and after each presentation.

This is an enthusiastic. interactive, and fun class. All are welcome from curious beginners to those who have enjoyed all aspects of jazz for many years.

He spends most of his outdoor time hiking, swimming, sailing, and canoeing. He spends most of his indoor time collecting jazz recordings, listening to jazz (which has been his passion since his early teens) and drinking wine.
