Free improvisation with Daniel Kelly

Daniel Kelly combines his knowledge of John Zorn’s “Cobra” system of group improvisation, as well as his own study of “conduction” techniques used to cue large group improvisation free from harmonic constraints. Daniel Kelly has taught several years at the Creative Strings Workshop, both working with the Youth and Adult program. Daniel is a great example of a highly creative musician who has done nearly everything thinkable in the music business, stopping at practically nothing to put his music out there and express himself without compromise.

Classes like this one below are just a sliver of the type of action you can expect at the workshop held in Columbus every summer.

btw, the dates for 2011 CSW are just in:  June 21-26

If you’re tired of fighting with your inner critic, know this:

I and many of my adult students and colleagues struggle with insecurities. If this applies to you, you’re far from alone.
