You are invited…
…to a meeting and discussion with
visiting UK examiner Christopher Gumbley

Wednesday 1st December, 7.30pm
Room 122, The Music Centre of Christchurch, 140 Barbadoes Street.
Christopher will share some key pointers about exam preparation, and will then focus on how to help your students add a Jazz feel to their playing – for both Jazz exams and Classical List C pieces. There will be plenty of time for demonstrations, questions and feedback.
All are welcome and admission is free.
RSVP to Lois Dalton by email (lois.dalton@clear.net.nz) or phone (03 348 1416)

Christopher Gumbley was educated firstly at Walton High School in Stafford and then at Huddersfield School of Music, where he studied clarinet, piano and composition.
Currently, Chris teaches saxophone at Birmingham Conservatoire of Music, though the emphasis has recently moved away from teaching and more towards examining, composition and freelance performing.
An eclectic musical outlook and adaptability in his playing has led to high profile work in the past with The Temptations & 4 Tops (U.K. Tours ’03 & ’05), Saxtet, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, English Chamber Orchestra, Pasadena Roof Orchestra and the Berkley Salon Ensemble, as well as theatre work, classical recitals and jazz gigs. He hosted his own radio show, Jazzbeat, on BBC Radio Stoke, up until recently.
Chris has a particular interest in jazz education and performance and runs his own courses in jazz and saxophone in the U.K. Midlands. Colleges and schools often call on his services in this field. He also runs a jazz club, Gumbles, in Stafford, his home town, which attracts leading players from Britain and overseas. Lately, Chris has earned national recognition for his educational music – mainly for wind – which has been published by Boosey & Hawkes, Saxtet Publications, Spartan Press, and Brass Wind Publications and appears on all the major national syllabuses. Gumbles Publications is a new venture designed to help promote his own music. Recent projects include Tribute to Cannonball, featuring arrangements played by the great Cannonball Adderley Quintet of the late 50s and early 60s, and Fascinating Rhythm, a quartet which has had success in bringing jazz to new audiences.
