– Workshop participant

Workshop Dates:
Tuesday, January 18 – Friday, January 21
Tuesday, June 14 – Friday, June 17

Acclaimed composer, drummer and bandleader Bobby Previte leads two immersive, four-day workshops for student, amateur, and professional musicians.

The January workshop, which will be conducted via Zoom, focuses on individual, or solo improvisation skills. Participants will record short solos and play in “round robin” improvisations. At the conclusion of the course, each participant will write a “score for improvisation” for someone else in the group to perform and document on video.

The in-person, June workshop will follow a similar though more hands-on trajectory with an emphasis on live performance. 

Hudson Hall’s programs are made possible with support from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

COVID SAFETY: All workshop participants at Hudson Hall are required to provide proof of vaccination and to wear masks. Read our updated COVID policy here
