Once again, September is swinging -- every Friday evening throughout the month, thanks to the prolific musicians from Brooklyn Music School (BMS)! These talented teachers know how to jam -- and you can join them, at these lively street jazz sessions, free and open to all. No instrument? No problem -- just pull up a chair and enjoy the show! You can even grab dinner to go from a FAB restaurant nearby and bring it to the plaza!
Musician Brian Woodruff is the Chair, Percussion, Co-Chair of the Jazz Department and Drum Instructor at Brooklyn Music School. "Beyond passing on my love of music, I try to give students a positive, one-on-one relationship with an adult figure who can perhaps fill some of the needs their parents can’t," he says. Brian's personal drumming style has been influenced by a wide range of musical traditions, including Cuban son and mambo, New Orleans jazz, and Haitian kompa. Outside of the classroom, he plays with his own sextet and with Jeff Newell's New Trad Octet. Catch Brian leading the band, and closing out the BMS series in Fowler Square on Friday, September 27, from 5:30-7:30 pm!
The BMS jazz music series is presented in partnership with Brooklyn Music School, a cultural district community institution since 1912. Learn more about their programs and classes on their website: www.brooklynmusicschool.org.
