Jazz Courses With The WEA

You’ve read about Steve Glendinning as a musician in the latest Jazz Coop review, so why not come to the Workers’ Educational Association jazz courses and have the benefit of Steve as Tutor?  I learned loads last term from the Jazz Appreciation. You can also learn improvisation on your chosen instrument.  The courses resume this coming Thursday January 15; Improvisation is at 1-3pm and Jazz Appreciation is at 3-5pm.  You can attend either course or both and you don’t have to have attended last term.  The courses are at the Unitarian Church in Saville Place in the centre of Newcastle.  We need more people to attend in order to get full benefit from the courses.  So I hope to see more jazz colleagues there on Thursday – don’t miss out!
