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.

I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
