This class helps students work on the basic skills necessary for improvising effectively. The class will expand knowledge of chord, scale, and key relationships and teach powerful practice routines to help internalize the music. Participants will learn to solo in a manner that is stylistically relevant, sounds compelling, and relates to the song’s form and melody. Students have the chance to play their instrument during each class.
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.
