Jackie Allen - Hans Sturm Jazz Experience open to the public

The Lincoln Music Teachers Association will host a virtual jazz experience with Dr. Hans Sturm (double bassist) and Jackie Allen (jazz vocalist) on Saturday, January 30th, 11 a.m. Non-member guests are welcome. Email hafezpiano@gmail.com to RSVP.

The renowned husband and wife duo have toured extensively, performing as soloists and collaborating with many throughout the United States and the world. Dr. Sturm is currently Hixson-Lied Professor of Double Bass and Jazz Studies at the Glenn Korff School of Music in the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. She teaches music at Doane College, in Crete and in Lincoln, instructs her adult course, Torch Singer 101.

This event is for LMTA students, 4th grade through adult, and their teachers. The only prerequisite is that participants are open-minded and interested in exploring new musical vistas that they likely have not considered before. The jazz experience will include a brief performance, followed by a walkthrough of various improvisation exercises. Students and teachers are welcome to try these exercises in real time (muted) for a more hands-on improvisation experience.
