Klezmer Jam

This jam is for all instruments and all levels of experience

Come join us for our twice-monthly Klezmer Jam sessions on 2nd and 4th Mondays at The Couth Buzzard (8310 Greenwood Ave N). This month’s session is​ Monday, May 13th, 7-9pm

Jam out at Klezmer Jam!

This jam is for all instruments and all levels of experience. We will begin each session with beginner-friendly activities so people who are unfamiliar with them have a chance to learn.

This will involve either learning a new tune by ear or taking a deeper dive into one we have already played at the session, for example taking a closer look at accompaniment patterns or melodic style. Throughout the rest of the session, we will play tunes at varying difficulty levels.

The idea is for there to be something for everyone, whether you’ve played this music for five minutes or for five decades.

Tunes & Resources

Sheet music is available, but playing by ear is encouraged. We will prioritize playing tunes from our resources folder (linked below), but if you have a tune you’d like to play please call it at the jam! The resources folder also has books of sheet music and other tools, such as klezmer mode tip-sheets and accompaniment guides.
