As part of the Exeter Vibraphonic Festival in March I am running an afternoon taster workshop for beginner improvisers on Bb/Eb saxes and brass. It will run 2pm to 5pm on Sunday 21st March in the Exeter Phoenix which is right in Exeter city centre. Because it is part subsidised by the festival, it will cost participants very little (about £10 I think). Booking is via the Phoenix http://www.exeterphoenix.org.uk
but anyone interested needs to talk to me first about their level of playing. People need to have good basic facility, know their major scales and be able to read easy jazz standards. I will cover basic theory on chords, major harmony and modes and work through a handful of easy jazz standards. We will be working with a piano player and bassist and I will be helping on drums. There are only 10 places. Call me on 07966 034 884 if you are interested or PM me. Pete

Another Intermediate workshop date

As well as the subsidised (£10) workshop for beginner improvisers on 21st March in Exeter (now about half full), I am running another day workshop on Sat 12th June at the Plough Arts Centre in Torrington aimed at intermediate players with some previous experience of jazz improvisation. This will also involve an early evening performance with rhythm section in the Arts Centre Foyer. Places limited to 10 and cost is £50. More details at http://www.petecanter.com/workshops

I live in Exmouth Devon.
Pete teaches me jazz ad I can thorouhly recommend his workshops - I attended his last one in Exeter and it was well planned, well attended, and totally enjoyable and informative - well worth the money IMHO

Do you these several times a year? Sounds right up my street, but Exeter is a hell of a way to go for me this year. If there's another next year (when I'll be based in bath) I'd love to know about it!
