Livestream. www.vtjazz.org, www.facebook.com/VermontJazzCenter/live.

"5 Goals, Infinite Possibilities for Jazz Guitar" (Online): In this interactive workshop, participants will expand their practical knowledge and learn new concepts with repertoire they are already familiar with - challenging themselves to see the infinite possibilities that a "jazz approach" can produce. 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Instructor Freddie Bryant asks each person to bring a tune they know well to the first class. Over the course, each person will apply 5 goals to that particular tune: Chord construction: from the fundamentals to the esoteric; Comping: rhythm and voice leading; Chord Melody and Solos; Single Line Soloing: expanding melodies; Groove: subdivisions and syncopation. These 5 goals can be applied to straight ahead, Brazilian, Latin, other jazz styles - so come with a song you love and embark on a musical journey with like-minded individuals. You'll learn new repertoire and expand your rhythmic/harmonic vocabulary. $200 on Saturdays for 10 weeks (No one will be turned away for lack of funds.). Online. Information: Register: vtjazz.org/education/classes. Questions: ginger@vtjazz.org.
