Great course
5
Jazz theory, and playing jazz in front of other people, can be quite a scary prospect. On the Jazz Ensemble course we're getting the benefit of Dorothy's encyclopaedic jazz knowledge for the theory, plus immediate practical application with a friendly bunch of like-minded people. Joining this course is a real step away from the solitary practice cycle and towards playing with others, plus it's great fun.

Great music teacher

Dorothy is a very committed and engaging teacher. I liked her practical tips and ways to make the theory understandable when I struggled with it and enjoyed playing in a jazz ensemble with other musicians.

Fun Jazz Ensemble Course
5
I'm in the middle of Dorothy's Jazz Ensemble course and it's brilliant. Dorothy has deep knowledge and is helping us get to the nuts and bolts of classic jazz pieces and styles. For someone like me with some experience of music but little experience of playing jazz it's a great way in. If you're learning an instrument at home you can get out and play with other people! Recommended.
