Course Description

The 6-weeks long Jazz Improvisation workshop is devised as an introductory study to entry-level students of jazz. Young musicians will have the opportunity to develop and improve their improvisational abilities through the study of standard jazz repertoire. Topics include swing, blues, ii-V progression, rhythm changes, modes, form, transcription, ensemble playing, critical listening, theoretical concepts, and historical figures in jazz. It is assumed that the students have no prior exposure to the jazz art form but are familiar with rudimentary concepts of music theory and have basic-intermediate knowledge of their instruments. The four hours a week that the students will spend with the instructor are adequate time to introduce them to these concepts in a lecture/rehearsal setting and then showcase the newly acquired skills in a final performance. Open to ages 14 - 18.
