Recently voted as one of the top trombonist in America by JazzTimes readers, jazz composer and performer, Wycliff Gordon, was recently in Virginia recording and performing with The Airmen of Note. In December, he took time out to come to Alexandria Campus.
NOVA students, community members, and Alexandria High School students attended a wonderful masterclass given by the amazing Wycliffe Gordon in December 2021. Professor Gordon demonstrated his warm-up process and then used call and response to show students how to internalize their musical ideas and express themselves freely using their voice. According to Professor Gordon, if you can sing it, you can play it!
