Jazz Violin Masterclass with Zach Brock
For this masterclass Zach Brock will discuss string-specific strategies for assimilating new harmonic and melodic vocabulary across the entire instrument as well as non-traditional bow techniques that are useful for playing swing and "pocket" time feel. This class is suitable for any string player who has developed the ability to shift up and down the neck of their instrument, can pull a straight bow, and is interested in developing an approach for more advanced improvisation.

HOW IT WORKS
These are live classes that are taught from Michiko Studios in midtown Manhattan. Students can attend by physically coming into the studio (in-studio) OR over the Lessonface high performing video conference platform. Students who attend in-studio will all be considered active participants. Online participants have the option of actively participating or auditing. Active participants will have the opportunity to submit work for feedback, and ask questions and demonstrate to the class. Auditors will watch and listen online, but not ask questions or submit work for feedback. Students can connect to the online platform using a tablet or computer with reliable internet. To actively participate online students also need a webcam with microphone. The live sessions are recorded so that all enrolled students and auditors can review the class sessions following the live class.
