Jazz Workshops in Devon

So, I’ve been living in Devon for the past six months. It’s very nice to be beside the seaside, but there’s not much music happening. See this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xcjPBjv-nE

So, to keep me sane I’m doing a series of workshops. It’s every day, unless I have a gig or am in London. It’s open to anyone. Just come along and we’ll play through the music. Express an interest and it’ll happen. Teignmouth be the place.

    You should have said – I’ve clearly been leaving you in peace far too much :-)

  5. Hi Mike

    Hope you’re doing well.

    I’m not quite sure what format you’re thinking of here, as in a number of one-offs or a regular thing. During the week is very tricky but not out of the question, as much as I’d love to make it during the week. A weekend school, Friday night through to Sunday would be a distinct possibility for me. Dunno if that would work for you or others, but figured it was worth mentioning. The North Wales Jazz Guitar workshop seems to make that format work pretty well and is well attended.
