Have you thought about joining one of our Jazz classes? Are you unsure what you need to know to be successful? This quick introduction will give you a sneak peak at what goes on in the jazz classes here at NHBT, what the expectations are, and a chance to play some great music with others. All instruments are welcome. The ability to read music and rhythms in your clef is required. Bring your horn and learn what our jazz enrichment classes are all about.
Patricia Wheeler holds a B.F.A. (Honours), M.A. and a PhD in music and teaches at Centennial College and Ryerson University. We are most fortunate to have Patricia as our “jazz” teacher. She is a longtime member of the JUNO Award® winning Neufeld-Occhipinti Jazz Orchestra, and has contributed to the pit orchestra of the Shaw Festival Theatre through several productions. Her compositions and arrangements have been performed by big bands, concert bands, choirs and soloists. Her debut album, “The Absolute Faith Orchestra”, was called “an astonishing recording” by the Toronto Star.
