Jazz Club - Combo North Bend

We bring students interested in learning and performing Jazz in a small group setting together with a Mentor Jazz Professional. Groups meet on a weekly basis and work with a mentor for 8 to 12 weeks depending on scheduling. Mentors rotate among different groups depending on geography, to keep the curriculum and repertoire fun and challenging. These small groups prepare for and give performances with their mentor. This is a recurring monthly commitment. At JazzClubsNW we are honored to have a great team of Jazz musicians working with our student groups. These mentors work with student groups on a weekly basis helping them learn about Jazz and performing with them. Musicians are added often as new student groups form, and they also rotate from group to group offering a chance for more students to work with and perform with each professional. This list changes often based upon the availability of these professionals and their busy schedules.
