I'm doing a workshop @ New School University in NYC where I teach.

The PR blast is below ; It's at 55 west 13th in the Village at 6th ave & 13th.


Woodwind Specialist Tim Price and Rico Reeds
Wednesday, April 20th
2:30 - 3:25 pm
5th floor, Performance Space- NEW SCHOOL UNIVERSITY NEW YORK CITY.

Rico Reeds and the FEO have come together to present this master woodwind
specialist. Mr. Tim Price is a seasoned artist who draws from a long career on
the road, in the studio and teaching in a multitude of settings and situations.
Some topics to be covered include Woodwind Repair, the Art of Doubling, The Art
of Jazz Tenor and Bari playing and some of Mr. Prices insights on music and
Jazz!

ALSO- I will be having a student of mine demo the results of a study of Don Byas via 2 chorus solo. It really changed his playing! You got to hear it. Really something that makes me aware of the joy of teaching. Opening up Byas always makes the HAWK stuff more crystallized.

Among other things I will highlight will be- -demo work on developing your phrasing. I am often asked about scales used to solo over chord progressions in order to sound more creative and more original. My response is usually to shift focus more on developing your phrasing rather than simply learning new scales. Learning new scales only will produce limited results because THE WAY you play has not really changed. Improving your phrasing deals more with the actual element of HOW to play the notes rather than "what" notes to play. When it comes to phrasing, remember that it is all about the little nuances that can make ALL the difference. You can take 10 great sax improvisers and give them the same lick and chances are they will each make it sound a bit different using the nuances of phrasing when they play it. In short, you don't need every lick in the world- but you do need imagery, phrasing and imagination. :)

Hope some of you can make it! Thank you.

Hi Tim,
Wow, what great timing. I'm in NYC now visiting my sister so I'll definitely check it out. Do I have to sign up or do I just turn up?
