This day-long session will introduce you to the “DeRosa Method,” our concept of teaching improvisation for vocal as well as instrumental teachers for all grade levels. This method simplifies musical concepts that generate positive results in a quick period of time while making it seemingly fun (at least non-stressful) for the student. DeRosa's axiom is: "knowledge instills confidence; confidence replaces fear".
Jazz comes from our way of life, and because it's our national art form, it helps us to understand who we are.
