How can you become a better bassist? Come to SJW this summer!
We’ve got some of the best bassists in jazz teaching this year, and you can work directly with them! You’ll learn technique, theory, and history, and you’ll get to put it all to work as the bassist in your own small band. You’ll improve more than you ever thought possible, and you’ll have a great time doing it.
