In this masterclass the Caili O'Doherty Quartet will discuss improvisation techniques and methods for developing a melodic sound.

New York-based pianist, composer, arranger and educator, Caili O’Doherty (pronounced “KAY-lee” “oh-DOE-er-tee”), is known for integrating structures of language in both her compositions and her approach to improvisation.
