If you need score, let me know so that I can share it with you.
You can bring tunes that you have been practicing but please bing 4 copies of score for other players.
2. Studio Cost Share
We are expecting all participants to share the cost of studio rental. We have no intention to make profit out of money collection.
It is expected to cost you AED 40 – 50 but it is subject to the number of participants. I may include audiences as headcount but the portion of audience would be very less but player’s payment is tagged with main headcount. It is due to the nature of the gathering where players enjoy and train own Jazz music. (It may change time by time)
We may record the play for the reviewing purpose (its kinda PDCA…) and put on meetup or Youtube within membership use. Please let me know in the studio if you have any reason that you may not want to have the recording shared.
Please understand that we expect various level of jazz musicians from different nationalities. Let’s enjoy cultural exchange and take this opportunity to learn something mutually. Non-Jazz players are also welcome to join as long as you want to try Jazz out with your music script.
Please check past jam session with photos posted. Waiting for your participation and enjoy jazz!
