Directed by John La Barbera, award winning composer, multi instrumentalist, studio musician for TV and Film, author

while understanding stylistic approaches and nuances of the music. It also includes his original music and arrangements.


The experience is designed to keep you focused on your playing your part while having the opportunity to play together. It will also enrich your repertoire of new and familiar styles.
