Workshops

Limerick Jazz Workshop meets on Tuesday evenings at Learning Hub Limerick in Kileely and students are organised in ensembles under the guidance of expert teachers. Each session involves the students developing their skills by learning and performing some of the great standards in the jazz repetoire. There are also three specialist classes for singers, beginners and a little big band with more emphasis on reading than improvising (but always swinging!).

Our main ensemble classes run from 7.45pm to 9.45pm.  Our specialist classes run from 6.45pm to 7.45pm.

We do our best to accommodate younger performers, but we sometimes dependent on having sufficient numbers to have a dedicated class for them.

 

We regularly perform in public as part of the course in Dolans and other city venues.  Our ensembles have supported performers such as Des Bishop and the Soweto Gospel Choir at the University Concert Hall, Limerick.  We have also appeared on the main stage at Africa Day in City Hall.
