Jazz is filled with many opportunities to blend in rich harmonies and powerful rhythms. Join Peter Karle as he writes a jazz standard style ballad on the spot. The workshop will introduce many jazz songwriting techniques that will turn a simple standard into a song with “A Little Spice”. Audience members can feel free to participate and add their own suggestions to create multiple versions of the same song.
