Jeff “Tain” Watts FREE Jazz Workshop

JazzArts Charlotte presents Grammy-winning jazz drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, for a FREE jazz workshop, in conjunction with his JAZZ ROOM weekend performances. JazzArts Charlotte welcomes student musicians from the Charlotte area and beyond to learn from an international master drummer, composer, and jazz innovator.
This applied workshop is open to middle schoolers and above, with at least a year on your instrument. All instruments are welcome – you are invited to bring it along.
Registration required.
Jeff Watts, the drummer they call "Tain," spent his formative years with Wynton and Branford, and proceeded to win 6 Grammys in that company. His compositional skills now command equal attention.
Jeff initially majored in classical percussion at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University, where he was primarily a timpanist, followed by enrollment at the Berklee School of Music.
Thank you to the program sponsors and supporters, who each bring jazz alive in Charlotte: Infusion Fund, Knight Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, North Carolina Arts Council, Arts & Science Council and O’s Place Jazz.
