Rodger Fox jazz Workshop

Members of the College’s jazz group attended an excellent series of workshops on Tuesday at the Aurora Centre, put on by the Rodger Fox Big Band. The topics covered were how to rehearse effectively, how to improvise, specific instrument masterclasses and culminated in a drum workshop and presentation by renowned drummer Dave Weckl. Some stayed on for the evening concert so gained full benefit from the opportunity. The jazz group participates in the JazzQuest competition held here in Christchurch in August.
