What is Fusio Jam Session

Fusio Jam Session is about playing in a band. It’s taught by guitarist, Bill Parsons. There are two types of bands: All Instruments and Guitar Group. In both, Bill teaches the art of ensemble playing, i.e. how to play in a band, or group. By fusing the musical personalities (and abilities) of the players, each group discovers its unique way of performing songs, this is Fusio.

What’s covered in the class
