SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Jazz vocalist MJ Territo will host a series of workshops at Hoff-Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale beginning on Friday, Dec. 2.
Teritto will cover a wide variety of topics including: the history of jazz, the basics of scat singing, bandstand behavior and more.
“Introducing music students to vocal jazz is very satisfying,” Territo said in a statement. “I enjoy being able to give them a taste of the jazz repertoire, the intricacies of jazz harmony and improvisation, and the importance of jazz in the history of our country.”
Teritto is a regular performer throughout the Tri-State area who released her first album, Down With Love in 2010. She is also the founder of the Ladies Day Jazz Ensemble, a group of women jazz musicians focused on compositions of jazz women. Their first CD, Ladies Day will be released in January 2017.
The workshops will be held on consecutive Fridays from Dec. 2 through Dec. 16. All workshops begin at 7 p.m. and admission is free.
