Mark your calendars for September 10th at 5:00 P.M! Paige’s Music will be hosting Dr. Shawn Royer for an in-store jazz clinic Playin’ Changes with Dr. Shawn Royer. If you are new to jazz or need a little guidance on what to practice, this is going to the clinic for you. Dr. Royer is going to focus on how to follow chord changes for jazz improvisation.
