The RJO provides a Saturday workshop for students in Northern Nevada who would like to work on improvisation, jazz theory, ear training, and small group performance. Currently taught by Dylan Coleman, 2 sessions are offered for 8 weeks per semester and 2 levels are offered. Each session is limited to 10 students. The final project is a small group performance that features the students opening a concert for the Reno Jazz Orchestra. This is a great opportunity for young musicians who would like to work on skills that they don’t work on in their school ensembles regularly. Students also benefit from the small group instruction and performance aspects.
