On Sunday, Dec. 13 internationally renowned guitarist John Stowell will give a clinic on jazz improvisation at the Open Music Collective in Brattleboro.
A variety of approaches to improvisation will be addressed, including the use of triads as a source for new melodic material, and how to use the harmonic and melodic minor scales to develop a personal sound and an individual approach to improvisation.
The clinic is open to guitarists at any level, as well as anyone on any instrument who seeks to expand their understanding of improvised music. The clinic will be followed by a performance with guitarist Draa Hobbs, with Jamie Macdonald on acoustic bass.
John Stowell is an award winning guitarist who has performed around the world.
The workshop begins at noon with a concert to follow at 4 p.m. Tickets are $40 for adults and $30 for students for the combined workshop and concert.
Tickets for the concert only are $20 for adults and $10 for students.
The Open Music Collective is located at 74 Cotton Mill Hill Studio A-335 (third floor).
