Saturday afternoon marked the first 805 SEMINARIO: a collaboration between 2 programs in the 805 area code region! We were joined by students and teachers from the Incredible Children’s Art Network (iCAN) in Santa Barbara, a program that shares a mission similar to that of Harmony Project and has kids around our age.
The theme of the afternoon was Jazz Improvisation, which was new to most of the students. Splitting up into 3 different workshops, teaching artists from each program co-planned and co-led sessions.
We learned new skills, songs, and styles, and most importantly realized that we are not the only kids playing music in the 805 area!
