6:00 - 7:00: Jazz Combos (Combos 1 and 2, 30 min each)
Mr. Kohen was most impressed with the instruction and the engaged participants, and hoped that each of our young musicians were "freshlyinspired and motivated to dig in". He sent an email to each participant, stating: "Here are a few takeaways I thought I would share with you:
2) There are no shortcuts
3) Embrace The Journey
4) Be a mature musician - take individual responsibility
5) Play with intention
6) Know the music and the musicians you are studying"
