Guided by the maestro Joshua White, this masterclass is an exploration of the delicate intricacies within the rhythm section — where drums, bass, piano, and guitar come together. It's not just about the technical prowess; it's about embracing the artistry of collective improvisation and the rhythmic dance of syncopation. The emphasis is on creating a musical dialogue that goes beyond the individual instruments. It's about fostering a connection, a synergy that transcends the boundaries of each player. This is not your ordinary class; it's a deep dive into the soul of jazz rhythm, where the heartbeat of the music is felt and understood.
