You’re not alone! This 2 hour workshop will help beginners and less experienced musicians on their own path to growth. Dom will cover some core components of what you need to begin to play this wonderful style of music. Dom will get you all playing too – bring your instrument along. Let’s get to learning! Suitable for young people aged over 11  Tickets [http://www.jazzleedsfestival.co.uk/monday_23/boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk] from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/jazzleedsfestival2018 [https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/jazzleedsfestival2018]
