Jan Deihl visits OA Music Students


Mr. Diehl came to Oldenburg Academy to help the students learn the art of improvisation. The

orchestra and instrumental students (25 students) had been prepared for the workshop by

learning the Bb Blues Scale and learning jazz rhythms. Mr. Diehl took these ideas further by

incorporating these ideas into improvised solos and riffs in many different jazz styles.

Jan Diehl is a retired music and jazz educator. He is a graduate of the

College Conservatory of Music /University of Cincinnati and was a school music

educator for over 35 years. He performs in several jazz and rock bands in the Cincinnati area

on clarinet, saxophones (alto and tenor), and electric bass.
