This is the second workshop of our Grasshoppers Young Composers Program, a series of workshops, mentorship, and a final concert that will teach high school-aged musicians basic composition skills in the jazz idiom. By the end of the program, students will understand the basic skills needed to compose a tune, notate the tune, and compose parts for rhythm section and horns.

This workshop features Douglas Detrick, trumpet; Lee Elderton, saxophone; Kerry Politzer, piano; Dan Schulte, bass; and Ken Ollis, drums performing and offering feedback to our student composers.
