What's on at King St in August

28 Jul 2020

It's Ekka time, and while it's not quite the same this year, there's still some great Ekka-inspired offers and events happening, plus more!

Jazz Music Institute JMI - Night Classes  |  Starting 5 August

JMI’s Night Classes are 8-week classes for 2 hours per week delivered by some of JMI’s esteemed faculty. The classes are held in groups of 5 to 9 people within a fun and supportive learning environment.

The classes will give you a better understanding of the jazz language by learning theory and improvisation techniques through performance and jazz repertoire. JMI teaches theory in a practical manner that makes logical sense. The classes are perfect for anyone from a jazz novice, to someone who has some experience playing jazz but wants to build on their skills, to someone looking to study tertiary music in the future and would like to get a head start before they begin study. To find out more, head to the JMI website.
