About Charm City Combos:

A jazz band experience for amateurs comes to Baltimore.

Finally, it’s here. Your chance to join a jazz combo, rehearse with a professional musician mentor in an exciting local venue, and perform public concerts. Over the 20 plus years that I’ve been teaching private jazz lessons I’ve had a number of students ask about ensembles they could join to get that small group jazz band playing experience. Up to now in the Baltimore area, there hasn’t been anything I could recommend.

 I am thrilled to announce Charm City Combos, my performance opportunity for adults that are interested in learning the art of jazz combo performance.

 Charm City Combos is for you if…

you are excited to learn or improve your jazz playing skills.

you enjoy making great music with others.

you want to be a part of Baltimore’s rich jazz scene.

If you’ve got the desire to get better together, then please give me a shout and let’s get swinging!
