PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR OUR NEXT REHEARSAL ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH: Please arrive at Flesher-Hinton Music Store  (3936 Tennyson, Denver) by 6:15pm.

Please bring your September dues if you have not already done so. These dues will carry us through 4 weekly sessions.

Please remember to bring your listening CD’s to Sunday’s rehearsal.

Rebecca, please remember to bring the borrowed pair of slacks back.

Please complete your transcription solo project. I’ll ask anyone who has completed the project to perform their solo for us.

We are in the process of updating our website, so please submit a paragraph of bio. info that I can post on the website about you. Please check out the postings that are already up there to give you some ideas on how to write your paragraph. Please email those to me as soon as possible. I’ve only received Rico’s so far!

The photo session will be on Sunday, October 9th at Bart’s photography studio (at Arapahoe and Emporia, near the Shane Company in Centennial). We’ll wear our blue shirts and new khaki slacks.

Practice your pentatonics around the circle of fourths. Also, your major triads plus six around the circle of fourths, on page 6. We’ll continue working on the half step exercises on pg. 9 as well. Please also prepare pg. 14.

We will rehearse all 8 selections for the October 2nd Summit Jazz Festival and Boulder Friends of Jazz performances. Please prepare all of the tunes and be sure they are completely memorized by Sunday. The set order sheets can be found on the Downloads page.

I’ll need to get a count of family members who will be coming to hear you perform at the Summit Jazz Festival on Sunday, October 2nd at 10:00 am. They can get in for free. I’ll also need to find out how many would like to stay for some or all of the pro performances after our set is completed. We get a special discounted $10 badge price for family members who would like to do this!

Please work really hard, enjoy your private lessons, and be ready for our September 25th rehearsal.
