City Slang: Detroit School of Rock and Pop Jazz Experience
The Detroit School of Rock and Pop in Royal Oak has announced that it will be offering a Jazz Experience on Thursday evenings from 5-7.
Head honcho Jason Gittinger says, “Utilizing our unique ability to provide meaningful mentorship and instruction combined with unparalleled real-world experiences, the program consists of weekly rehearsals, recording opportunities, concerts, events, and even their own television specials. Small group training is the focus, with an emphasis on developing improvisation skills. Students also have opportunities to compose their own material and premiere their works at concerts.
“Tuition charges are $149 per month, with scholarships available for exceptional students and students in need. The groups meet on Thursdays. Students are encouraged to contact the school office to set up an audition as space for the program is limited.
