SCAT SEMINARS

Scat Seminars: Marty conducts "Scat" seminars for all levels of educational venues (Jr. High, High School, College and Adult Schools). He traces the origin of Scat by using generational archival videos and recordings of all forms of American Popular Music. He takes the students on a journey through time right back to the Field Hollers of the Black American slave generation in order to find the Blues roots of our musical heritage. He then brings the students gradually back to the present, illuminating all the thematic and structural threads that bind our marvelous musical styles together. He ends the seminar with his much-loved interactive "Scat-tag". This seminar is both educational and very enjoyable for the students.

If your school or organization is interested in having Marty present his semimar at your venue, please email him: mnels199@att.net.
