It’s the Can Do Band because no matter how difficult the charts are that instructor Kanoa Kaluhiwa throws at his students, he knows they can always play them (they CAN DO)! So, in this class, participants will learn 3 to 5 tunes by ear (mostly jazz but not limited to jazz), with a focus on learning the melody, harmony and rhythm, as well as an opportunity to try out short portions of solos. Participants will do some reading of charts written by Kanoa or excerpts of solos, as well as other play-along books. They will discuss each of the main elements that make up a jazz (or other) composition: melody

In keeping with the CoVid Safe policies of the Outpost Performance Space, proof of vaccination is required in order to participate in the in-person classes. Proof of negative PCR test will also be accepted. Masks must be worn by all who can do so and still play their instruments (i.e. drummers, bass players, keyboard players, etc).  In addition, an effort will be made to maximize the distance between participants in the in-person classes.

One of New Mexico’s most sought-after saxophonists, tenor saxophonist Kanoa Kaluhiwa started playing professionally while in High School and received two scholarships to the Eastman School of Music summer Sessions in New York. He also studied for two years at the Berklee School of Music in Boston.
