This course will give an overview of the artistry, technique, repertoire, influences and harmonic language of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan and Woody Shaw. We’ll explore recordings and analyze transcriptions of each musician to gain insight into their individual creative and expressive voice within the jazz trumpet idiom. Examples of harmonic and rhythmic patterns, concepts and implications will be given for you to understand and practice.
This is a 10 week course, meeting online once a week for 90 minutes. Instructors will live stream via Zoom Video Conferencing at the scheduled meeting times. We appreciate your patience as we are quickly putting together online learning in this time of constant change. We recognize that there will likely be a learning curve with this technology (for both students and staff), and will do our best to provide technical support throughout this process.
