Jazz Piano Lab focuses on the core skills of rootless voicings, comping, and improvisation in a group setting with pianist instructor Nelda Swiggett. These skills are mandatory for jazz ensemble playing and this study can potentially serve to advance students in lieu of Level 1 ensembles. 
Jazz Piano Lab will study and practice:
  • Standard rootless voicings for II V I and blues
  • Rhythms for comping
  • Right hand melody improvisation with left hand comping

    Student Requirements

    Punctual attendance and desire to learn to play jazz/desire to improve.


    Homework is comprised of playing assignments based on in-class work.

    Lab meets 1.5 hours weekly.
