Guitarists of all ages are welcome to attend the Fifth Annual SXU Jazz Guitar Workshop Day at Saint Xavier University.

"Bossa Nova Guitar and Other Latin Styles"

This year's workshop will look at the various styles of Latin Jazz and how it is performed on the guitar.

We will look at the various rhythmic accompaniment patterns and chord voicings for bossa nova, samba, Afro-Cuban, and other Latin feels.

The workshop is open to students of all-ages. Basic knowledge of guitar fretboard, performance technique, and music notation reading will be helpful. Students may bring either their acoustic or electric guitar. Some amplifiers will be provided, but students may bring their own as well.

Questions regarding the workshop may be directed to Shawn Salmon, director of Jazz Studies, at salmon@sxu.edu.

Registration for the workshop will be open beginning August 2018.
