Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band Camp

“There are three really good ways to get better as a musician.

One is to practice a lot, all day, and every day. That’ll do it.

Another is to get yourself a really good teacher, someone who challenges you and inspires you.

Another way is to play with people that are better than you are.”

We can’t help you with suggestion 1, you pretty much have to commit to that one on your own. But we might be able to help with suggestions 2 and 3. This week-long program is a hands-on, immersive experience with the Grammy-winning Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band members. Including combos, improv, and a final performance, you can’t find this experience anywhere else! Having amassed 21 Grammy nominations, four statues and three Emmy wins, Gordon Goodwin is the most decorated big band leader in the 21st century.

Ages: 12+
