Joining new jazz band

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by bass87, Feb 18, 2003.


  1. Ok so the first Monday after half term Im going to join a new jazz big band, which my teacher has recommended I go to. Im kinda nervous because the organiser is apparently quite strict and expects a lot of you. The band Im in at the moment is fine as its a relaxed kinda atmosphere, but Im worried Ill screw up at this new one. Im not sure exactly what I will do on my first week, I may be given the music and sent away to learn it, or I may be asked to sit in and play straight away. Anyone have any tips what to do before hand, and what to do when I get there to help?

    Thanks in advance
