The Dirty Dozen Brass Band from New Orleans, LA is performing at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe next Wednesday and they are teaching a clinic for the LA Jazz Project before their gig!!!


Not currently enrolled in LAJP but want to come to this amazing clinic and concert?  No problem!  


If you have ever taken an LAJP course (combo or big band) and are willing to quickly learn a song (on your own), you can come along.  You will need to respond to my email ASAP - we have 15 spots available on a first come, first serve basis.  Here's what else you have to do:

  1. Respond to Mr. Finn ( saying you will come (note: will not want)

  2. Be prepared to bring a $20 check to LAJP

  3. Learn the music Mr. Finn sends once you confirm

  4. Be amazing and represent LAJP in a classy way (dress appropriately)

  5. You may opt to come down for the clinic only and return to Los Alamos (there is a HS football game that night - Topper Marching Band - return transportation will only be provided after the concert)

It's that easy!  If you need more information before committing, please see below:
