Dan Mar-Molinero

We are delighted to inform you of two upcoming Jazz Workshops which are open for all musicians, whatever instrument they play, who are grade 4 standard and above. These sessions will be led by Dan Mar-Molinero, a saxophonist, composer and educator who has been recognised nationally for his work in jazz and commercial music both as an educator and practitioner. Alongside composing and performing, Dan lectures in Jazz and Popular music at Southampton University.

The workshops will take place on:

Saturday 11 February 13.00 – 15.00 at Medina College
Saturday 18 March 13.00 – 15.00 at Medina College

The workshops will explore and teach fundamental jazz skills and repertoire through practical sessions. Topics covered will include Time and Feel, Jazz Harmony, Jazz Language through Improvisation, Jazz Chords and Building a Solo. Musicians taking part will gain a better understanding of performing jazz and improvising. The workshops aim to demystify some of the complexity surrounding jazz conventions and to explain in simple terms how to make the most of improvising and playing the music.

To sign up for these sessions please email Matt Courtney at or speak to him in person on a Saturday morning.
