“We invite all musicians to join us, beginner or experienced, if you can read music OR play by ear. We will play mostly Dixieland, Swing and Traditional jazz tunes, from the music books we provide. We have parts (melody and harmony) written out for all players…. Trumpet/Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trombone, Piano, Bass, etc….. so, you will be able to play even if you don’t play by ear much. Of course, if you can play by ear, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to solo, improvise, etc. …. if you so desire!
At the end of jazz camp, you will have an opportunity to buy ($15) a flash drive with all the music on it, for all instruments, that you can print out at home and use with your own band.”
I am again offering my Music to all…. this time through a popular (free) down-load option known as “Dropbox”. If you install (many of you already have)…. the Dropbox App to your iPad or tablet, you can get access to my music and put it on your Tablet for your use.
My music …. “SkillMusic” is a collection of 162 early Traditional Dixieland and TRAD tunes that I have created (arranged) using Finale software over the past 6 years, with 3 part harmonies, and all transposed to native key for:
- Clarinet/Trumpet/Tenor Sax,
- Alto Sax and
- “Lead Sheets” for use by Piano, guitar, Banjo… etc.
(Note; The clarinet parts can by read/played on other Bb instruments such as: Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Bass, Sax, etc… except sometimes the music goes out-of-range for those other Bb instruments and you must transpose up or down an octave those few notes.)
Below are the Links to my music in Dropbox that anyone can access from an iPad, Android, PC or Mac Computer, Once the free Dropbox app is installed (most computers have this already) . Just click on the Links below to view the music in Dropbox, then load the music you choose… onto your favorite program you use to View PDF Music files.
