Description:
This workshop will provide students with the skills to accompany and improvise on guitar in a variety of styles including Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk and World Music. Designed with the professional music therapist in mind, the presenter will receive prior to the event suggestions from the attendees of what they want to work on. Each category listed in the agenda will include a breakout session for participants to work on skills in a group at the level they are comfortable with. Presenter will compile the information and present on the majority of requested information. There are no required prerequisites for this course.

About Jenn Werner and the Jenn Werner Stipend:
Jennifer’s passion resided in the arts. She attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and received her Bachelors of Arts in Music Therapy. Alongside working full time, she gigged with jazz bands including the Adam Meckler Orchestra, and played in classical ensembles including the Encore Wind Ensemble. People who have had the honor of playing with her or have listened to her play, know that she could slay a bass trombone part in a rockin’ jazz tune then turn around and create beautiful classical music as part of an orchestra. She possessed a musical talent that we all could appreciate, and quite frankly, be jealous of.
As much as music was a part of her life, her attributes far exceeded her musical talent. She was a wife, a daughter, a sister, a dog mother, a colleague, an aqua-scaper, a remodeler, a liberal advocate, and a friend to so many. Her personality, sense of humor, opinions, drive, and thoughtfulness will be greatly missed as we are left here to comprehend the loss of a truly beautiful person.
The funds from the Jenn Werner stipend are used for MTAM members that are facing significant hardship.
