Play in a small combo under the tutelage of a working professional. Students develop individual styles while learning an essential repertoire. Development is enriched by public performances in FlynnSpace on December 5th and, potentially, at other performance opportunities at the discretion of the combo directors.

Audition for all new members: September 3. Email the FlynnArts Manager or call 802-652-4537 for a timeslot.

For the audition, bring a piece that demonstrates your ability to play single note lines and/or chord progressions, as well as improvisation skill and, sight reading. Students are placed in the four Flynn jazz combos based on the following criteria: a) demonstrating a basic level of instrumental competency; b) age range; c) schedule availability, and; d) instrumentation needs of each group (each combo needs to have a balance of rhythm section and single line instruments). Please note that due to the small size of the group and instrumentation needs we may be unable to place all new members.

Vocalists: The adult jazz combos are not currently able to take on any vocalists.

He attended the Hartt School of Music and later New School University, studying with Jackie McLean, Gary Valente, Steve Davis, Jane Ira Bloom, Andrew Cyrille, and Charles Tolliver. While at the Hartt School, Andrew joined the Trey Anastasio Band, with which he toured and recorded for the next four years, sharing the stage with artists like Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, Peter Apfelbaum, John Medeski, Les Claypool, and Warren Haynes. His time with the band also included appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Austin City Limits, and others. Since returning to Vermont, Andrew has performed and recorded on trombone and piano with numerous local groups, and served as adjunct faculty at the University of Vermont and Johnson State College. From 2010-2012 he toured with Anais Mitchell’s Hadestown Orchestra, which brought collaborations with Todd Sickafoose, Ani DiFranco, and Corin Tucker. Andrew was also a regular member of the Discover Jazz Big Band, working with greats like Jim Hall, Randy Brecker, Paquito D’Rivera, and Jim McNeely.
